Says he’s ‘not the right person to represent’ people with values

In the latest of Sean Casten’s corrupt campaign tactics, he continues to accept support from Max Temkin and his company Cards Against Humanity, which recently launched an illegal vote-buying scheme to bolster Casten’s candidacy. The matter has been referred to the Election Crimes Branch at the U.S. Department of Justice for criminal investigation.

Casten’s relationship with Temkin is just one in a line-up of Casten’s extreme affiliations who share his radical political “values” that shock and offend Sixth District voters. See video here.

“Casten’s criticisms of bad behavior are partisan and one-sided, as he gladly accepts the financial and political support of Temkin and his company while remaining silent about allegations of rape and his reprehensible jokes about date rape, mass shootings, ethnic cleansing, the September 11, 2001 terror attacks, and the Holocaust,” said Roskam for Congress Spokesman Veronica Vera. “These are unacceptable views for an elected leader to espouse. Casten should return all money raised in connection with this group and immediately denounce its practices of promoting the most disrespectful and hurtful mockery of some of the worst tragedies in world history.”

Temkin’s Cards Against Humanity “Jew Pack” was pulled off of Target’s shelves in December. But what’s one more offense between friends? Now, Temkin has launched “Cards Against Humanity Hacks the Election,” a criminal vote-buying scheme to pay for the support of Sixth District voters with a free game pack and pamphlet on why they should vote for Casten. Casten’s public outcry of bad behavior when it’s committed by political allies? Silence.


According to the media publication Jewish Telegraphic Agency, “Cards in the ‘Chosen People Pack’ version were flagged on social media in recent days for prompts like “Can’t you see, the Jews are behind everything — the banks, the media, even _____!” and an answer reading “Torturing Jews until they say they aren’t Jews anymore.”

The product also contains jokes about atrocities like rape and gun violence, including card themes like the “Virginia Tech massacre,” “date rape,” “ethnic cleansing,” “suddenly remembering the Holocaust happened,” “hiding from the Nazis,” “some kind of concentrated encampment for people,” and “seeing things from Hitler’s perspective.”
