Jewish Candidate Files Objections Against White Supremacist Opponent

-By Warner Todd Huston

Illinois state Representative Julie Hamos (10th District) has filed objections to the filing petitions of Green Party candidate Richard Mayers saying that his petitions lack the required 31 valid signatures. But Rep. Hamos also objects to Mayers’ past white supremacist ties.

Mayers was charged in 2005 with destroying three public library VHS tapes about the Holocaust and with contempt of court for allegedly making a Nazi salute in an Illinois courtroom…

Mayers has been linked to the white supremacist group The Creativity Movement, which terms Jews and all non-white groups “mud races.”

Hamos told reporters that Mayers has “no interest” in “bringing thoughtful or useful discussion” to the race. “He is merely using this opportunity to spread a vile message of hatred and intolerance,” she said.

The Green Party also claims that Mayers is not an official member of the Party and is not representing them in the race. Party chairman Phil Huckelberry reports that Mayer was removed from the Party in 2007 after objections were raised in his filing to run for the 3rd Congressional District.

The 10th District seat is currently being held by Mark Kirk (R) who is giving up the seat to run for the U.S. Senate.
