Towson, MD – A Jewish Maryland state legislator said on Thursday that a man yelled “Heil Hitler” at her while she was campaigning.

The legislator, Shelly Hettleman, told the Baltimore Sun that the man stopped his car and screamed the phrase at her Monday morning. Hettleman, a Baltimore County Democrat, said the man also yelled, “You don’t represent us” and uttered several expletives.

Hettleman’s husband and campaign manager both witnessed the scene. Baltimore County Del. Dana Stein was campaigning nearby and saw someone yelling at Hettleman, though she said she was unable to decipher what was said over the sound of traffic.

Hettleman said she plans to report the incident to county police. Police spokesman Cpl. Shawn Vinson said the incident will be investigated as a bias incident.
