Georgia Senator David Perdue claims his attack ad, in which the nose of Democratic Challenger John Ossoff is enlarged, was simply a graphic design error.
Ossoff said the ad employed "the oldest, most obvious, least original anti-Semitic trope in history."
From Huffington Post:
Perdue's campaign claimed that "in the graphic design process handled by an outside vendor, the photo was resized and a filter was applied, which appears to have caused an unintentional error that distorted the image."
"Obviously, this was accidental, but to ensure there is absolutely no confusion, we have immediately removed the image from Facebook," a spokesperson said in a statement sent to multiple media outlets. Perdue himself hadn't seen the ad before it was released, they said.
"Anybody who implies that this was anything other than an inadvertent error is intentionally misrepresenting Senator Perdue's strong and consistent record of standing firmly against anti-Semitism and all forms of hate," they added.
Ossoff wasn't buying the explanation, however.
"Senator, literally no one believes your excuses," he tweeted Monday.
