On a recent broadcast of The Chai95 Radio Hour with Adam Taxin,
on WWDB 860 AM in Philadelphia, Republican Pennsylvania U.S. Senate
candidate Sam Rohrer stated that, if elected, he would be willing to
co-sponsor a Senate resolution that recognized the Turkish Muslim
extermination of up to 1.5 million Armenian Christians during the
period from 1915 to 1923 as a "genocide."

Last Thursday, March 22, Chai95 Radio Hour host Taxin (aka the
writer of this piece) asked Rohrer, a nine-term former Pennsylvania
State Representative from the Reading area: "Would you as a Senator
co-sponsor a resolution [to recognize] the Armenian Genocide," to
which Rohrer responded unequivocally: "Yes, I would. Absolutely."
