Following Rep. Jamaal Bowman’s appearance at a fundraiser hosted by Columbia law professor, Katherine Franke, who justified terrorism against Israelis after the October 7th attacks, DMFI PAC Chairman Mark Mellman issued the following statement:

“First Congressman Jamaal Bowman denied the sexual violence against Israelis on October 7th. Now, he’s raising money at an event hosted by a Columbia professor who justified that terrorism against Israeli civilians. 

It’s not surprising that Bowman would rely on her for help, but it is disgusting. Actions like this are an important reason Bowman is running behind his opponent, DMFI PAC endorsee and Westchester County Executive George Latimer.”
