On Monday, Georgia Congressman Hank Johnson likened Jewish settlers in the West Bank to a steady stream of “termites.” In light of these outrageous and clearly inappropriate comments, Georgia Republican Party Chairman John Padgett is urging Rep. Johnson to resign from public office.
“Thanks to President Obama’s failed leadership and reckless foreign policy, our relationship with Israel is strained. Congressman Hank Johnson’s comments were wildly offensive and undermine efforts to strengthen ties with our closest friend and greatest ally. Time and time again, Rep. Johnson has proven himself to be an embarrassment to our state. He should resign from public office immediately and allow a public servant with a heart for Israel to take his place.”
