On March 13, 2003 ADL reported that "ADL leaders across the country have spoken out, calling the congressman’s statements 'outrageous, offensive and baseless.' National leaders and regional directors have responded on the airwaves and in print with the message that crude appeals to anti-Semitism are unacceptable and un-American. ADL’s Washington Regional Office made clear in a letter to Rep. Moran that his comments were insensitive and deeply troubling. The letter stated that, 'Scapegoating and appeals to racial, ethnic and religious intolerance are incompatible with the trust of public office.'”
