Neo-Nazi Nabs GOP Nomination for Illinois House

Neo-Nazi Arthur Jones, former leader of the American Nazi Party, nabbed the Republican nomination to represent Illinois’ 3rd District in the House of Representatives.  The candidate, who famously called the Holocaust, “the biggest, blackest, lie in history,” and on his website, refers to Jews as “blood thirsty, criminal vampires,” racked up more than 23,000 Republican votes in the March, 2018 primary.  His campaign slogan, echoing the President Trump, is “America First.”

It is unclear whether Jones will benefit from funding from the Republican Congressional Committee.
