According to a Dec. 12 retraction, The Jewish Press apologized for a recent blogpost about Jack Abramoff, the former lobbyist who completed a prison sentence for mail fraud and tax evasion.

The blogpost, which has since been unpublished, “questioned whether or not he was eating non-kosher when spotted at a Washington D.C. restaurant meeting with Tom DeLay.”

Abramoff challenged that reporting, saying “he would never eat treif” (non-kosher), the retraction states.
