Paul Nehlen, who is running to unseat Rep. Paul Ryan (R-WI) in the Aug. 14 primary, has been accused of anti-Semitism.
“Paul Nehlen Is an Anti-Semitic Clown,” reads a Jan. 24. headline in the Atlantic. The Forward reported he “spent the morning after Christmas being anti-Semitic on Twitter.”
Nehlen’s Twitter account has reportedly included retweeted photos of media figures with stars of David next to their heads. Those tweets were later deleted.
Ryan defeated Nehlen in the 2016 primary, with 84 percent of the vote.
