Key Jewish Democrats in Congress say they will vote against Iran deal

WASHINGTON – Hours after US Sen. Charles Schumer (D-New York) announced that he would vote against the Iran nuclear agreement, another Jewish Democratic member of Congress, Rep. Brad Sherman of California, said on Friday he would follow suit.

Sherman, the second ranking Democrat on the House Foreign Affairs Committee, said that after reviewing details of the deal, his conscience forced him to vote against his party’s president.

“My efforts have one purpose – make it clear that future presidents and Congresses are not bound by this agreement,” Sherman said. “Not legally, not morally, not diplomatically.”
