Art Jones, Illinois Republican Congressional Candidate, Says Holocaust Never Happened

Posted: Updated:

A congressional candidate running as a Republican in the upcoming Illinois primary says the "Holocaust never happened."

Arthur Jones, 64, a Lyons, IL, insurance salesman who organizes family-friendly, neo-Nazi events around Adolph Hitler's birthday, hopes to be the Republican candidate chosen to run against Democratic Congressman Dan Lipinski in Illinois' 3rd Congressional District.

"As far as I'm concerned, the Holocaust is nothing more than an international extortion racket by the Jews," Jones said. "It's the blackest lie in history. Millions of dollars are being made by Jews telling this tale of woe and misfortune in books, movies, plays and TV."

"The more survivors, the more lies that are told."
