Steve Berman, “a prominent Jewish developer,” went after former state House Minority Leader Stacey Abrams (D) “for her vote against legislation that required firms bidding for state contracts to certify that they aren’t participating in an economic boycott of Israel” in an op-ed for the Times of Israel. Abrams responded in an op-ed on Medium, “calling herself an ‘unwavering ally’ to the Jewish community” and saying “she voted against the measure because it could set a precedent ‘that could prevent a 21st century campaign similar to the actions taken by civil rights fighters’ such as the anti-apartheid movement of the 1980s.” (Atlanta Constitution-Journal)
