Senate Candidate Lee Whitnum (CT) Calls Opponent a "Whore for AIPAC"

See candidate's platform, stand on Israel at

4-5-12 WEST HARTFORD — It was a new tone and a new day in the race for the U.S. Senate race among Democrats, when Lee Whitnum called one of the contenders “a whore” in his support for Israel and another “ignorant.”

Whitnum, who was not invited by the organizers of the last debate in early March, was condemned afterwards by her colleagues and by U.S. Rep. Chris Murphy, D-5, the subject of her “whore” comment, during the debate when he had a chance to react to her criticism.

Whitnum, acknowledged she may have crossed the line, saying she “wasn’t really thrilled” with her performance, according to the Associated Press.

“I’m dealing with a whore here who sells his soul to AIPAC (The American Israel Public Affairs Committee), who will say anything for the job,” she said of Murphy’s support for Israel. She referred to state Rep. William Tong, D-Stamford, another candidate as “ignorant.”
Earlier in the debate she said she would bring more federal dollars back to Connecticut by advocating that the U.S. stop its support for Israel which she estimated, if ended, could mean $600 million for Connecticut to fix its schools and bridges. Whitnum said she is suing the federal government over this. She also sued to be part of the last debate, but was turned down by the court.

“The Jewish community has always taken care of its own. There isn’t any reason why Connecticut children and Connecticut people have to pay the price for a country that is not impoverished,” Whitnum said.

Murphy said now more than ever Israel needs support from the United States.

“This is in our national security interest, ultimately in the interest of U.S. taxpayers to have a strong relationship with Israel and I think it is worth saying on this stage that a lot of her comments have been out of bounds and over the line,” said Murphy, who along with Susan Bysiewicz are the leading contenders for the party’s nomination, according to the recent polls.

Whitnum proposed that the U.S. prosecute American settlers who “go to Israel and maim or kill in the Proimised Land.” She said this “would solve anti-American sentiments worldwide. This is the number one reason why people hate this country.”
As part of his final comments Murphy said he was rethinking his support for all the contenders to be part of the debates that are just starting to unfold for the U.S. Senate seat being vacated by retiring U.S. Sen. Joseph I. Lieberman, I-Conn.

“I’d advocated for all the candidates to be a part of these debates and I might think twice about that with that kind of awful language being used on the airwaves,” Murphy said of the live debate sponsored by NBC Connecticut.

Marc Bradley, campaign manager for Tong, afterwards said there was no place for these personal attacks in the race and he called the slur she used against Murphy “despicable.”

In response to criticism of Whitnum’s performance at the April 5 NBC debate Whitnum blames her disconnect and hostility at the end of the debate on being “flabbergasted” at the other candidates apparent ignorance of well-documented fact. 

“I was struck speechless. The entire reason why I run for public office is because of the Neoconservatives’ role in the taking down of Iraq. A handful of people played my great country into unnecessary war. This must never happen again. It mobilized me into action and it is why I run for public office. I can’t believe the other Senate candidates were not aware. My realization of their ignorance shocked me so much it caused a momentary disconnect. I think for the first time in my life I was rendered speechless.”

Whitnum said she finds it hard to believe Congressman Murphy doesn’t know about the facts. “I can’t fathom that a Congressman doesn’t know about what happened. The first question any American should ask after it was proven by the bi-partisan 9-11 Commission that there were no WMD is why did we take down Iraq? It was not an accident. We were played by a handful of Neocons with an agenda for Mr. Netanyahu.”
Whitnum cites the Washington think tank that spawned the Neoconservative, The Project for the New American Century and Mr. Netanyahu’s highly published manifesto that came out of that think tank. 

“The Neoconservative manifesto is called: Clean Break: A New Strategy for Securing the Realm”, said Whitnum. “It was written by Richard Perle and other neoconservatives for Mr. Netanyahu. Penned by Richard Perle in 2000 and signed by (Colbert, Fairbanks, Feith, Loewenberg, Torop, Wurmser) it states plainly, “focus on removing Saddam Hussein from power in Iraq – an important Israeli objective in its own right – as a means of foiling Syria’s regional ambitions.”

“I still can’t believe that a handful of Neoconservatives, the aforementioned plus Joe Lieberman, Judith Miller, and Steven Hadley played my country into unnecessary war.” said Whitnum. “at the same time AIPAC bragged that ‘quietly lobbying congress for war in Iraq’ was an accomplishment. Our worst strategic decision as a nation was AIPAC’s accomplishment. Scary.” 

Regarding the other candidates, Whitnum believes Tong is very bright but doesn’t know anything about the Neoconservatives. Susan knows but will never publicly admit, and Murphy, to whom she directs most of her anger, is “a feel-good candidate.” 

“It just proves Murphy is a feel-good candidate who will say anything to get himself elected,” said Whitnum. “I would never do that. I can’t tell people what they want to hear – I’m going to tell them the truth. I’ve never been afraid to face truth.”

Whitnum says that in 2003 after reading Bob Woodward’s “Plan of Attack” and then the first 60 pages of Pat Buchanan’s book “Where the Right Went Wrong” that changed her life and spurned her into political action. She has since done extensive research on the topic. She has posted relevant points on her website citing 40+ references all pointing to the same chain of events and the same people. All responsible for the lead-up to Iraq.

“Those who don’t learn from history are destined to repeat it. We are on the brink of another war, Netanyahu has the nerve to come here and to demand that we take down Iran all part of the same agenda. Meanwhile he hasn’t lifted a finger to solve his domestic problem which is something five US presidents have demanded – a resolution to the ongoing Israeli-Palestinian Conflict. A conflict that makes us all unsafe. Demand truth and knowledge from your candidates.”

Whitnum is a candidate for US Senate in Connecticut.

Wow, good for her. She's a brave woman that's for sure. She as on Kevin Barrett's Truth Jihad Radio show a few weeks ago, and was extremely disappointing when it came to 9/11... at least she's addressing the Zionist Jewish domination of our political system. It's hard enough to get anyone to do that, let alone talk about 9/11 and Israel's central role in that event.

I like this woman but her 9/11 stance leaves a lot to be desired.

She really has nothing to lose by going all out.

spec/ops ret. said...

As you say Kenny her comments on 9/11 leave much to be said,but @
lease she is talking about the zionist control of US/gov.,
in its self is enough for her to
either "kill her self",or die in a
car crash or a plane crash,the sheeple need to learn a lesson that
you can't talk about "zionist"control.
