The ongoing uproar over Darren Bailey’s 2017 claim that the Holocaust “doesn’t even compare to a shadow” of the lives lost through abortion reminded me of a scene in an old movie called A Bronx Tale.

The allegation Bailey made on Facebook was exploded thanks to a brutal TV ad from Gov. JB Pritzker’s campaign. The ad begins with an announcer watching a used video clip of Bailey saying he would not allow a woman who has been raped or incestated to have an abortion. “Maybe you thought you heard everything Darren Bailey had to say about abortion,” the voiceover narrator says before the clip plays. “But that’s not all Darren Bailey said,” the person continues as the newly unearthed clip is shown to viewers.
