SANTA FE A prominent member of Temple Beth Shalom says former CIA operative Valerie Plame, contrary to what she recently told an Israeli journalist, is not a member of the Jewish congregation in Santa Fe.
Plame, now a New Mexico congressional candidate, continues to draw criticism for retweeting an anti-Semitic article headlined Jews are Driving Americas Wars in 2017. But she said in the recent interview that shes drawn to her own Jewish heritage and that she has joined Temple Beth Shalom.
One of her opponents in the race for the Democratic nomination for the U.S. House seat in New Mexicos 3rd Congressional District has repeatedly called attention to the controversial 2017 tweet, for which Plame has apologized. The campaign of Santa Fe District Attorney Marco Serna says Plame shared antisemitic conspiracy theories.
Plame said during [a recent ABQ Journal] videotaped interview that shed discovered that her great-grandfather was a rabbi in Ukraine, that she had always been drawn to that aspect of my Jewish heritage and that this interest led her to Temple Beth Shalom in Santa Fe.
She said she is a member of the temple. Israeli journalist Tal Schneider, who interviewed Plame, reported confirming with members of the local Jewish community that Plame had attended some services.
But Daniel Yohalem, a Santa Fe attorney who is a member of Temple Beth Shalom and has served on the temple board, said Wednesday that Plame has never been a member of the congregation, at least as of earlier this week. He said he checked the temples membership list and also confirmed with the congregations staff that Plame is not a member.
I am deeply concerned about Miss Plames repeated apparent lack of candor on these issues, said Yohalem.

She wasn’t a CIA operative, either. She was a desk jockey.

I am shocked! Shocked, I say!
Will she sue Scooter Libby?
Ukraine? They’re everywhere.
Also she was a CIA employee, not an agent or operative.
2. What is all these people in power from Ukraine families?
No, she just has some questions about the membership fee.
And was disappointed not to have qualified for the senior rate.
So true. LOL!
You've got to admit that is a pretty good resume to run as a Democrat.
It's called lying, you damn fool. The gullibility of Democrat Jews astounds me.
In the dictionary, under the definition for cognitive dissonance, there should be asterik with the note "see liberal American Jews".
Butt, butt, butt a covert agent never would right? LOL!
“She wasnt a CIA operative, either. She was a desk jockey.”
At some point she MAY have been an “operative” but IF she ever was, she was long since outed by Aldrich Ames.
I think she converted to Judaism JUST for the JOKES!
A Jew of Convenience, not Faith.
I read that she was an undercover CIA agent and that she outed herself because of her incompetence and she had to be extracted to save her
Valerie Plame was never a CIA operative. She was a office worker who got a CIA paycheck. I laugh at these stories that treat her like some sort of Jason Bourne.
