A Jewish gadfly in Miami Beach is protesting the date of next spring’s special election to fill the seat being vacated by Boca Raton Rep. Robert Wexler, a Democrat, because it falls on the last day of Passover. The Associated Press is reporting that Bob Kunst, who made a name for himself in 1996 by organizing protests outside a McDonald’s that opened across the street from the Dachau death camp, wrote a letter yesterday to Florida’s governor, Charlie Crist, complaining that the April 6 date is “an attack upon the religious Jewish community.” A Crist spokesman told the Associated Press that the governor, a Republican, is looking into changing the date.
