PALM BEACH COUNTY, FL (WFLX) - The controversial former Palm Beach County Democratic Party leader appears set to try to get back into a leadership role.
Members of the Democratic Party feel it is too soon for Mark Siegel to try and run for a state position after he was forced to resign for making controversial remarks back in September.
During the Democratic National Convention, party leaders say, Siegel told a conservative Web site that Christians, who support Israel, wanted to see Jews slaughtered. A comment that Siegel says was taken out of context.
He's challenging incumbent John Ramos and Irving Rosenthal. This would make Siegel eligible to run for chairman of the Florida Democratic Party next month.
The Democratic Executive Committee meeting takes place at the Vista Center Thursday at 7 p.m.
