Republican Silence on Paul Nehlen Racism, Anti-Semitism ‘Disturbing’

Scott Walker, Brad Schimel Refuse to Condemn Conduct of Donor Nehlen

MADISON, Wis. — Despite Republican Paul Nehlen’s continuing racism and anti-semitism, Wisconsin’s most prominent elected Republican officials, including his opponent Rep. Paul Ryan, have refused to condemn Nehlen’s actions. Republican Gov. Scott Walker and Republican Attorney General Brad Schimel, who have both received campaign contributions from Nehlen, have offered no condemnation of Nehlen.

“Paul Nehlen’s racism has now become an international incident and yet Paul Ryan, Scott Walker and Brad Schimel have stayed completely silent. Their silence is disturbing and points to a much larger problem with the political party of Trump. If Walker, Schimel and Ryan are willing to keep quiet to court the votes of racists in order to win re-election, then they are even worse than Nehlen.”

A review of state campaign records shows that Nehlen has given Schimel a total $1,500 and Walker $275. Additional contributions from Nehlen went to various Republican Party entities as well as the Wisconsin Young Republicans.
