Fairfax, VA - Republican leaders in Virginia are seeking the resignation of a member of the party’s state central committee after he suggested he would not vote for a Jewish candidate.

Virginia GOP Chairman John Whitbeck said committee member Fredy Burgos should resign, and he told The Washington Post on Monday that efforts are underway to remove him if he won’t.

In a Facebook post, Burgos posted a quote from John Jay, the first chief justice of the Supreme Court, that calls on Christians “to select and prefer Christians for their rulers.” Burgos states that “having preference for Christians over non-Christians as political leaders is not bigoted.”

Burgos was supporting a candidate for a Fairfax County party post who is running against a Jewish candidate.

Burgos says his comments were misconstrued.

There's a difference between favorig one group and being anti another. If we say vote for a yid that's ok. If we say don't vote for this that or the other group that's more of a problem.

You mean the garbage of the yiddishe medina. While a strong conservative, I still hold that Israel takes up the minds of all parties. The liberals in this respect think a little more clearly and dont run for the Zionist propoganda. Good for them!

Wow I’m new here but I can’t help but notice how involved you are with everything Trump does and you seem to have an unhealthy level of hatred against him. ..?.
