WE’RE WAITING: When Will Perdue Apologize for Anti-Semitic Ad?

July 31, 2020

Days after investigation revealed Perdue’s campaign was running anti-Semitic digital ad, Perdue himself has yet to apologize, instead laying blame on others

ATLANTA — It’s been four days since Senator David Perdue’s campaign was caught running an anti-Semitic digital ad that “lengthened and widened” Democratic nominee Jon Ossoff’s nose while “other parts of his face stayed the same size and proportions.” After Perdue’s team initially refused to comment at all on this disgusting ad, Perdue himself still has yet to offer any statement — let alone an apology.

This weekend, as Perdue prepares to speak to a Republican Jewish organization on Sunday, the Democratic Party of Georgia and Jon Ossoff are calling on Perdue to apologize to the Jewish community of Georgia for this ad and to donate any money raised off it to organizations dedicated to fighting anti-Semitism and hatred.

“There is no place for anti-Semitism and bigotry in politics, and it’s past time for Senator David Perdue to apologize for this disgusting attack,” said Alex Floyd, spokesman for the Democratic Party of Georgia. “Once again, we are asking Perdue to hold himself accountable for this ad and to make appropriate amends for injecting hateful stereotypes into this election.”
