USA – Anti-Semitic remarks painted on truck of Lake Clarke Shores candidate

A Lake Clarke Shores Town Council candidate woke up Monday to find his pick up truck sprayed with anti-Semitic remarks. Gary Goldstein said a Swastika and the word Jew were painted across the hood and the driver’s side of the truck parked on his driveway in the 8300 block of Pine Tree Lane.

Goldstein said the hate crime is related to his running for office in a city of 1,500 residents with a small Jewish population. He said he is the only Jewish candidate vying for a town council seat.
Goldstein said the incident will not deter him from campaigning for the March 13 elections and plans to attend political events with the anti-Semitic remarks painted on the truck. “It is sad that in the 21st Century, this is the mentally of the people”
