Video: CT Senate Candidate Lee Whitnum Calls Opponent a "Whore"

| by Michael Allen

During a televised debate for the Democratic nomination for Connecticut’s US Senate seat, author Lee Whitnum ripped Congressman Chris Murphy for his pro-Israel stance (video below).

Whitnum said: “I’m dealing with a whore here who sells his soul to AIPAC [The American Israel Public Affairs Committee], who will say anything for the job.”

Murphy responded: “I’ve advocated for the candidates to be part of these debates. I might think twice about that with that kind of awful language being used on the airwaves.”

Whitnum also referred to state representative William Tong as “ignorant.”
