Rep. Jan Schakowsky (D-IL) was forced to apologize on Tuesday, after attacking a political opponent for being an “Orthodox Jew” at a radical leftist J Street conference.

At the conference, Schakowsky negatively painted Joel Pollak, her opponent in 2010 elections, by highlighting the fact that he is a religious Jew – a choice of words that the crowd responded to by booing Pollak.

In her comments, she criticized Pollak for being a “Jewish, Orthodox, Tea Party Republican.”
