Fliers Showing Challenger as Devil Embroil Bitter House Race

By THE ASSOCIATED PRESS PARAMUS, N.J. Nov 3, 2016, 8:08 PM ET

A flier portraying a Democratic congressional challenger as the devil is the latest flashpoint in an already bitter New Jersey race.

Democrat Josh Gottheimer's campaign called the fliers "blatantly anti-Semitic." Gottheimer is Jewish.

The fliers were circulated at schools and train stations in the New Jersey congressional district that stretches from the suburbs across from New York City to rural towns.

Republican incumbent Rep. Scott Garrett denounced the flier portraying Gottheimer as the devil with horns and a pitchfork. Sarah Neibart, Garrett's campaign manager, called it disgusting and said she would never authorize it.

1. At this point, how can ANYONE deny the blatant racism, xenophobia & sexism of the Republican Party?

I'm so disgusted by the whole group.
