Dem Senate Candidate Jon Ossoff Says Opponent’s Campaign Altered His Photo In “Anti-Semitic Trope”

The Washington Post reports:

Democrat Jon Ossoff on Monday denounced a now-deleted Facebook ad by Sen. David Perdue’s (R-Ga.) campaign that appeared to make Ossoff’s nose look larger, accusing Perdue of playing on anti-Semitic tropes.

Perdue’s campaign blamed an outside vendor and described the altered photo as an “unintentional error” that was caused when a filter was applied.

According to the Jewish news site the Forward, which first reported on the ad, the black-and-white photo of Ossoff was “changed by having his nose lengthened and widened, even as other parts of his face stayed the same size and proportions.”
