Voters Like to Look Up to Their Elected Officials as Long as They Do Not Strain Their Necks

03/20/18 Washington Times summarizes a Washington Post story.  I would link directly to the WaPo, but "Democracy Dies Behind a Paywall."  (Yes, I know that they need to pay their reporters, but the sanctimonious tone bugs me.)
A D.C. Council member who apologized over the weekend for suggesting that Jewish financiers control the weather has propagated the anti-Semitic conspiracy theory in the past.
D.C. Council member Trayon White Sr., a Democrat, claimed that the Rothschilds — a European Jewish banking family descended from Mayer Amschel Rothschild — control the World Bank and the federal government during a Feb. 27 gathering of top city officials, The Washington Post reported Tuesday morning.
“There’s this whole concept with the Rothschilds — control the World Bank, as we all know — infusing dollars into major cities,” Mr. White said, according to video footage reviewed by The Post. “They really pretty much control the federal government, and now they have this concept called resilient cities in which they are using their money and influence into local cities.”

Ten bucks says he has no idea what the World Bank actually is, and really thinks it's "the World's central bank" or something similar.
