New York - Mayor Of Spring Valley Pledges Retaliation Against Jewish Developers In Recorded Conversation
Spring Valley, NY - In a newly released secretly taped conversation, Spring Valley Mayor Demeza Delhomme can be heard pledging that he will vote against building permits submitted by Jewish applicants in retaliation for not supporting him.
LOHUD.com (http://lohud.us/1N8LoHW) reports that during the recording which was taped last March at Village Hall, Delhomme says, “Yes” in response to a question as to whether he’d vote against “anything a Jew brings.”
Delhomme later reinforces his intentions, stating, “I sear to God. On the application. Any Jew that comes in.”
As mayor, Delhomme, along with members of the Board of Trustees, has a vote when special development permits are tabled at public meetings.
In the recording, Delhomme makes his motive for his retaliation against Jewish developers quite simple, saying that it’s because they didn’t support him.
When theoretically asked about a scenario in which a Haitian and a Jew submit identical applications, Delhomme made it clear he’d vote in favor of the Haitian.
“I’m voting for them,” the mayor states. “Because they voted for me. They supported me.”
When asked to respond to his statements in the recorded conversation, Delhomme said, “Do you have proof that I have been discriminating against anybody? If you don’t have proof of it, stay the hell away from me.”
