Today the Emergency Committee for Israel released “Double Talk,” a 30-second TV ad that will begin airing this weekend in Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz’s congressional district.
The ad highlights Wasserman Schultz’s attempt to deceive her constituents by portraying herself as a staunch supporter of Iran sanctions — even as news reports confirm she is working behind the scenes to kill bipartisan House and Senate measures that endorse new sanctions should talks with Iran fail.
The spot will air multiple times on cable news and Sunday political shows in South Florida over the next several days.
Emergency Committee for Israel executive director Noah Pollak said, “Debbie Wasserman-Schultz is trying to play her pro-Israel constituents for fools – telling them she supports Iran sanctions while she’s hard at work in Washington trying to kill bipartisan House and Senate measures for the most partisan of reasons.”

Note that Hentoff was one of the first national journalists to publish support for Sarah Palin, in April 2008, after her decision to give birth to her son Trig, who had been diagnosed in utero with Down Syndrome.
