Roger Stone Endorses Proud Boy For Hawaii House

Media Matters reports:

Roger Stone endorsed Nick Ochs, the leader of a Hawaii chapter of “western chauvinist” hate group the Proud Boys, in his campaign for a state representative seat. The Proud Boys, whose members have been linked to acts of street violence, often provide security for Stone.

Ochs is the Republican nominee for Hawaii House of Representatives District 22 following his victory in an uncontested primary election.

He will face Democrat Adrian Tam during the general election on November 3. According to University of Hawaii at Manoa student newspaper Ho’a O’ahu, Ochs was associated with President Donald Trump’s Hawaii campaign before founding a chapter of the Proud Boys, which has become “one [of] Honolulu’s most reviled conservative organizations.”
