Former Dem chair who said Christians want Jews ‘slaughtered’ draws foe in comeback bid

Monday, November 12th, 2012 by George Bennett

Former Palm Beach County Democratic chairman Mark Alan Siegel, who was pressed to resign by Florida Democratic leaders in September after a videotaped rant against pro-Israel Christians, will attempt a return to party leadership next month.

Siegel plans to run for the county Democratic Party’s state committeeman position. The state committeeman, state committeewoman and party chair represent the county on state Democratic Party issues.

Democratic Executive Committee member Mike Rios said today that he will also run for state committeeman. Rios is head of the Puerto Rican/ USA Hispanic Democratic Club and lost a state House primary this year.
