Rep. Soto requests investigation of GDL
March 10, 2023
Following up on his promise made to Rabbi Konikov of Chabad of South Orlando and the entire Central Florida Jewish community, Rep. Darren Soto reached out to the United States Attorney General Merrick B. Garland to seek an investigation into the antisemitic actions committed by the Goyim Defense League a couple weeks ago in southwest Orlando, the Lake Nona area and Volusia County.
“I write to express my concern with incidents perpetrated against the Jewish community in Central Florida by the ‘Goyim Defense League.’ I respectfully request your full and fair consideration of an investigation into potential civil rights and criminal violations committed by this group,” he wrote in a letter to Garland on March 2.
A copy of the letter was also sent to the Federal Bureau of Investigation.
“We must use all resources available to stop the spread of hate,” Soto stated.
