WFB: The Democratic National Committee has withdrawn its sponsorship of the Women’s March, amidst controversy over the ties of the group’s co-chairs to Nation of Islam leader Louis Farrakhan and allegations of anti-Semitism.
The DNC joins other groups that have withdrawn sponsorship, such as the Southern Poverty Law Center and EMILY’s List, Jewish News Syndicate reports. The National Organization for Women and the NAACP also appear to have removed their official support for the Women’s March.
Tali Goldsheft, a Brooklyn-based critic of the Women’s March leaders, said on Twitter that about 300 other groups are no longer listed as partners with the march. more
