two suicidesover accusations of being Jewish
"Sources say Spence Jackson, spokesman for the late Missouri auditor Tom Schweich, was found dead in his apartment Sunday, according to the St. Louis Post-Dispatch and other news organizations. His death is being investigated as a suicide, the newspaper reported.
Schweich, who was running for governor took his own life in February after accusing state Republican Party chairman John Hancock of spreading rumors that he was Jewish. Since then, the party has been bitterly split, with former U.S. senator John C. Danforth calling for an end to smear campaigns."
My comment "WTF!? saying someone is Jewish is a SMEAR CAMPAIGN? it might be false which is a different issue, but SMEAR CAMPAIGN like being Jewish is a bad thing? And killing yourself over it? sounds like some kind of antisemitic undercurrent is alive and well in this scene. Are these people all secret members of some Nazi organization? John Hancock and John Danforth (if he used the word "smear campaign" and it wasn't just misapplied to describe what he said) included?"
