Following the release of Clinton campaign chairman John Podesta’s emails, several email threads between various members of Clinton’s staff and allies exposed an anti-Catholic culture within the Clinton campaign. When the news leaked, CatholicVote.org called for the resignation of Clinton campaign spokeswoman, Jennifer Palmieri, who joined in mocking two prominent media members for raising their kids Catholic. She called Catholicism “the most socially acceptable politically conservative religion. Their rich friends wouldn’t understand if they became evangelical.”
On FOX, the Megyn Kelly File reported on CatholicVote’s call for Palmieri’s resignation:
CatholicVote.org is a lay-led movement of committed Catholics who are passionate about living out the truths proclaimed by Christ and His Church in the modern world. We are joined in this mission by many individuals of other faith traditions (and no faith tradition) because the common good we seek is universal to all men and women of goodwill.
As patriotic Americans, we believe that life, faith, and freedom are precious rights, and that the family is the foundational unit of society.
