Watch a Segregationist Congressional Candidate Squirm


Jim Russell, the anti-immigrant, anti-Jew, anti-miscegenation, anti–Save the Last Dance Republican candidate for Congress in Westchester, sat down for an interview last night in an attempt to clear his name after being disavowed by the state GOP. Russell came across as nervous and jittery — as one would expect of anyone tasked with making his racist views sound innocuous — and it was overall a very uncomfortable viewing experience. Please enjoy.
