Nelly Jordan is out as vice-chairwoman of the Sussex County Republican Party after a Facebook posting viewed as anti-Semitic.

Afterward Jordan told the Wilmington News Journal that she was not anti-Semitic but realizes her words were inappropriate and apologized for them.

One passage referred to “Many Jews In Name Only” who supported the impeach of the president.

The vote was nearly split down the middle with some expressing frustration that the party had to deal with the issue just as it enters an election year.

WILMINGTON, Del. (AP) — The state Republican party chairwoman in Delaware is calling for a party leader to resign for using a derogatory word for a gay man in a Facebook post.

The Delaware News Journal reports that New Castle County Republican Party Chairman Chris Rowe will resign this weekend amid state GOP chairwoman Jane Brady’s call for him to step down from the appointed position.

In a statement Thursday, Brady also condemned a Facebook post by a different party leader that she called “offensive, hurtful and anti-Semitic.”
