Senator David Perdue (R-GA) posted a campaign advertisement featuring an image of his Jewish challenger, Jon Ossoff, digitally controlled to have a larger nose. Once the timeworn antisemitic stereotype was seen, he was required to pull back the ad, but Perdue is refusing to excuse it Matt Novak sums up the imbroglio:
