1999 was a long time ago, he has evolved since then.
Via Daily Wire:
Newly-unearthed comments made by Florida Democratic gubernatorial candidate Andrew Gillum’s running mate raise serious concerns about Gillum’s ever-mounting ties to blatant antisemitism.
Gillum selected 39-year-old Chris King, a progressive businessman from Orlando, in early September to be his lieutenant governor running mate.
After a recent report from the Washington Free Beacon revealed Gillum’s ties to “several prominent anti-Semitic organizations known for promoting boycotts of Jewish goods and individuals,” Gillum’s campaign now has to deal with remarks made by King in 1999.
In an article written by Jonathan Tilove, King complained about losing an election where he was running to be the president of the Harvard Undergraduate Council by blaming Jews.
“This could have never happened in the South,” King said. “I was nailed to the cross. And most of the editorial staff that was so hard on me, the vast majority were Jewish.”
King has admitted to making the anti-Semitic remarks, but claims that they are “at odds” with who he is and says that his comments were “hurtful” and “stupid.”
