[Ed. – Just be aware of this. Breitbart points out that the Democrats also have unsavory candidates purporting to run — unapproved — under their brand. But we can be sure the media will focus on this Illinois guy, who is as vile and anti-Semitic as they come. Frankly, the state party should have come up with a candidate instead of not fielding one. The GOP can’t afford to whiff on things like this.]
Holocaust denier and neo-Nazi Art Jones is running for Congress in Illinois — and he is going to be the Republican nominee for the liberal third congressional district, over the objections of the Illinois Republican Party.
The district, which encompasses the southwest side of Chicago and neighboring suburbs, is represented by 7th-term veteran Rep. Dan Lipinski (D-IL). Lipinski is a moderate Democrat who voted against Obamacare in 2010.
Jones is an admitted former leader of the American Nazi Party, a Vietnam veteran, and a retired insurance agent. According to the Chicago Sun-Times, he has tried to run for Congress many times before, without success. …
He claims to have supported Donald Trump in 2016, but the UK Guardian quoted him in April 2017 telling a neo-Nazi rally in Kentucky that he regretted his vote for Trump: “I’m sorry I voted for the son of a bitch, I really am.”
