Charges Jews Don’t Receive Due in Federal Appointments

Download PDF for this date

Jews are not receiving their just due in the matter of Federal appointments, former Assistant Corporation Counsel Charles S. Witwer of this city charged today.

“At the present time the Jews do not have equal representation with Gentiles,” he declared.

Mr. Witwer is a candidate for the Republican nomination to Congress from the 24th Congressional District. In a campaign statement, he declares he will “immediately proceed to bring to bear every possible influence to secure for the Jews federal appointments in Washington in proportion to the Jewish population.” That is, of course, if he is nominated and elected.
