Election Tricks
The Jewish community in New York was shocked to discover that a Congressman that claimed that he was Jewish and a descendant  of Holocaust survivors, lied about his identity. 

I'm sure this news will be dealt with on the local level, but there is an interesting phenomenon in this story.  Fifty years ago, many Jewish politicians tried to cover up their Jewish origins to help their chances to be elected. 

Today, a non-Jewish politician claims to be Jewish, in order to improve his chances at being elected.  What a difference!
