The American Israel Public Affairs Committee is distancing itself from a political action committee that has run ads against Democratic presidential candidate Bernie Sanders.
The political action arm of Democratic Majority for Israel, formed last year to bolster the party's support for Israel as its conservative government faces growing criticism from American progressives, ran a six-figure ad campaign in Iowa last month that questioned Sanders' health and his ability to defeat President Donald Trump in November.
AIPAC spokesman Marshall Wittmann denied any such arrangement, saying by email that the organization "is not and has not been involved in the ad campaigns of any political action committee. The accusation that AIPAC is providing benefits to members for donating to fund these political ads or this political action committee is completely false and has no basis in fact.”
