Russia Election Approaches With Anti-Semitic Mudslinging

Russia is holding elections on Sunday, and the presumptive winner, Putin's handpicked successor, Dmitry Medvedev, was enjoying a ruffle-free campaign until his foe stirred questions of Medvedev's Jewish heritage.

Nikolai Bondarik, who heads a group calling itself the Russian Party, is claiming that Medvedev's mother is Jewish. Though he has no solid proof, other than speculation about her maiden name, he says voters should be informed.

Bondarik says,
"It has nothing to do with anti-Semitism. I just think Russia's president should be Russian." Wow. While the pictures of the campaign show a crisp and clear outlook, the election might just have gotten muddy. Are you surprised to hear this talk in 2008?
