Jewish Gubernatorial Candidate’s Campaign Sign Vandalized with Antisemitic Death Threat

U.S. Congressional rep. for New York’s District 1 and nominee for New York governor Lee Zeldin’s campaign said he was the target of an antisemitic death threat. 

A swastika was spray-painted with the number 187 on a Zeldin campaign sign in Huntington. The number refers to murder in the California penal code and is often understood as a death threat. 

The watchdog group StopAntisemitism tweeted about the incident over the weekend stating they were “sickened” by the graffiti.

If elected, Zeldin would be New York’s first Jewish Republican governor. 

A campaign spokesperson said in part, “This type of raw hate must never have any home on Long Island or anywhere else.”
