January 5, 2022 – Republican U.S. Senate Candidate Ally Isom issued the following statement in the wake of Entrata co-founder and former CEO David Bateman’s inflammatory email with antisemitic conspiracy theories sent to Utah leaders and his past campaign contributions to U.S. Sen. Mike Lee:  

“Like many Utahns, I am outraged by Dave Bateman’s email to business and government leaders. His words are harmful and dangerous. Antisemitic rhetoric has absolutely no place in our community, especially at a time when antisemitic crime has increased. This is a time for responsibility, not excuses. The incumbent may not have complete control over what money comes into his coffers, but he has complete control over where that money goes. I call upon Sen. Lee to make things right and donate Bateman’s contributions to Jewish charitable organizations.”

“I believe the Republican Party is the party of big ideas and a big tent for all kinds of people, but there is no place for antisemitism or prejudice. Utah deserves better.“

Ally Isom’s community outreach work at the Utah Governor’s Office and at The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints included working with Utah’s Jewish communities. “We have so much in common and I have seen the tremendous good that results from mutual respect and cooperation. These are days when we must pull together.”
