People For The American Way reports that Maryland state Sen. Anthony Muse, one of NOM’s allies in the battle to repeal marriage equality, has published the above sample ballot in his bid to move up the to U.S. Senate. PFAW writes:
Muse, an African American minister in the Washington suburbs, is challenging Sen. Ben Cardin in a Democratic primary election next week. Cardin is Jewish. Maryland Juice has posted a copy of a Muse sample ballot reportedly being distributed at some early voting centers that seems to indirectly make Cardin’s religion an issue. The second page notes the underrepresentation of African Americans and other people of color, but also seems to go out of its way to imply there are too many Jews in the Senate. What legitimate reason is there to include a count of Jews in this tally, when there is no count of any other religious group?
