Part-time Wasserman Schultz aide, Jewish Dem outreach leader joked about money-obsessed "Jewbags"

JewishFile this Washington Beacon report under the Perils of Facebook**:

The Democratic Party’s newly appointed Jewish outreach liaison is pictured on Facebook in a series of provocative photos with her friends holding dollar bills and referring to themselves as “Jewbags” and the “Jew cash money team!”

Dani Gilbert, who has been a staffer in the office of Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz (D., Fla.), was recently appointed as the Democratic National Committee’s Jewish outreach liaison, according to her Twitter feed.Photos publicly available on her Facebook page depict her engaged in the kind of youthful displays that social media like Facebook and Twitter have made increasingly common and problematic for young Washington staffers.

In one photo, Gilbert is seen kissing paper currency of undetermined denomination. The caption at the bottom of the photo reads “JEWBAGS.” A comment left on the posting refers to Gilbert and a coterie of female companions as the “Jew cash money team.” Other photos depict Gilbert as a bit of a party girl, including one featuring an assortment of condoms.

Republicans are eating this stuff up. The Shark Tank political blog called Gilbert Wasserman Schultz's 'Mini-Me.' And on it goes.

**Note: the picture here is from 2006, underscoring the fact that puerile humor from the way-back can politically haunt you today.
