Illinois Republican Party Fights Former Nazi Party Leader

February 09, 2018 - 9:05 am

ST. LOUIS (KMOX) - Illinois' Republican Congressional delegation is taking a strong stance against someone trying to join their ranks.

Arthur Jones is running in the 3rd Congressional District, which covers parts of Chicago and its southwest suburbs. Jones is a Holocaust denier and former leader of the American Nazi Party who says on his campaign website that "race mixing is against the laws and nature of God."

Every Illinois Republican in Congress signed a letter saying in part, "This is not who we are as a party or as a country and we urge civic-minded citizens to get involved in the political process to prevent non-party extremists like Jones from hijacking nominations."
