News Flash: Mass Resignation at Jimmy's Carter Center

A reassuring assertion that there is still a glimmer of conscience amongst the libs who hooked up with the grinning idiot in the first place. Via YidWithLid:

The reputation of the Peanut President continues to sink. Today fourteen board of adviser members of his once reputable Carter Center quit. They said it was a result of his biased, anti-Israel book. An excerpt from the Fox News report, Carter's Book Prompts More Resignations:
Fourteen members of an advisory board to Jimmy Carter's human rights organization resigned on Thursday to protest his new book, which criticizes Israeli policy in the Palestinian territories.

The resignations from The Carter Center board are the latest backlash against the former president's book "Palestine: Peace Not Apartheid," which has drawn fire from Jewish groups, been attacked by fellow Democrats and led to the resignation last month of Kenneth Stein, a center fellow and a longtime Carter adviser.

"You have clearly abandoned your historic role of broker in favor of becoming an advocate for one side," the departing members of the Center's Board of Councilors told Carter in their letter of resignation.

The 200-member board is responsible for building public support for the Carter Center. It is not the organization's governing board.
