50-year loyal Dem Alan Dershowitz threatens to resign his Democratic Party membership

Famed law professor Alan Dershowitz vowed to renounce his Democratic Party membership if Rep. Keith Ellison is named the new DNC Chairman.

The Harvard Law Professor Emeritus argued that the divide within the party will only be widened if the Democratic National Committee selects the Minnesota congressman who has been associated with the Nation of Islam’s Louis Farrakhan.

“If they now appoint Keith Ellison, who worked with Farrakhan, to be chairman of the DNC, you’re going to see a lot of people leave,” Dershowitz told host Sandra Smith Friday on Fox Business.

“I’m going to tell you right here on this show, and this is news,” he added, “if they appoint Keith Ellison to be chairman of the Democratic Party, I will resign my membership to the Democratic Party after 50 years of being a loyal Democrat.”

Dershowitz noted that although he could still support some individual Democratic candidates, he is concerned with the state of the Democratic Party as a whole.

“I will still vote my conscience and mostly I’ll vote for Democrats, but I will not be a member of a party that represents itself through a chairman like Keith Ellison and through policies like that espoused by John Kerry and Barack Obama,” he said.

Ellison is the first Muslim elected to Congress and came under fire a few weeks ago for racially charged statements he had made.
