I have to admit...

When George Allen said that he did not know about his family's Jewish history before last month, I found that hard to believe.

But it looks like it's true.

All this came up when a rude reporter/panelist asked Allen last month this question:

"You've been quoted as saying your mother's not Jewish, but it had been reported her father, your grandfather Felix, whom you were given your middle name for, was Jewish," Fox asked Allen. "Could you please tell us whether your forebearers include Jews, and if so, at which point Jewish identity might have ended?"

It's an interesting story to be sure, but why is it important?
