Mitt Romney Has Something Against Holocaust Survivors Now

WASHINGTON, DC - JUNE 28:  Speaker of the US House of Representatives Newt Gingrich (L) prepares to shake hands with Rabbi Moshe Herson (R) after presenting a Congressional Gold Medal during ceremonies on Capitol Hill in Washington, DC, 28 June. The medal is given in honor of the late spiritual leader Lubavitcher Rebbe, Rabbi Menachem Mendel Schneerson, (Photo-C) who died last year.AFP PHOTO  (Photo credit should read RICHARD ELLIS/AFP/Getty Images) Has Mitt Romney ever shaken a rabbi's hand while wearing a yarmulke?

As Floridians head to the polls today, a Gingrich robocall is reminding them one last time that Mitt Romney once vetoed funding for kosher food to be served in Jewish nursing homes in Massachusetts. But the Gingrich campaign is taking the message just a little bit further than before:

The robocall begins by saying: "As governor of Massachusetts, Mitt Romney vetoed a bill paying for kosher food for our seniors in nursing homes. Holocaust survivors, who for the first time, were forced to eat non-kosher, because Romney thought $5 was too much to pay for our grandparents to eat kosher."

Surely some of the those nursing-home Holocaust survivors were blind as well?
