Senator David Perdue has not apologized for running an anti-Semitic Facebook ad that graphic design experts confirmed “lengthened and widened” Democratic Senate candidate Jon Ossoff’s nose “even as other parts of his face stayed the same size and proportions.” The Republican incumbent’s campaign only removed the vile attack after being confronted by the Forward, and they blamed others instead of taking responsibility and apologizing.
In addition to explaining why he still hasn’t apologized for the ad, Senator Perdue owes Georgians answers to the following questions:
1. Did Senator Perdue’s campaign fire the vendor who designed the ad?
2. Has the Perdue staffer who approved the ad been held accountable?
3. Will Senator Perdue donate all funds raised off of the fundraising ad to a charity committed to fighting anti-Semitism?
“Senator Perdue’s first offense was running this disgusting ad, and his second was refusing to take any responsibility for it and letting others shoulder the blame for his campaign,” said DSCC spokesperson Helen Kalla. “Senator Perdue’s excuses and avoidance of accountability are yet another failure of leadership for an incumbent who’s stooped to a new low by leaning on tired and hurtful tropes to boost his flailing campaign.”
