GOP Yanks Advert Purchase For Ohio Candidate Who Lied About Military Support

A Republican candidate for a northwest Ohio congressional seat has seen his aid vanish overnight, pursuing an investigation that uncovered he’d lied about deploying to Afghanistan right after the Sept. 11 terrorist attacks.

The National Republican Congressional Committee on Thursday pulled almost $1 million in advert reservations, at first booked to enhance J.R. Majewski, a Trump-endorsed QAnon supporter who attended the Jan. 6 insurrection and has encouraged Republican states to secede from the union.

Resources common with the committee instructed Politico they’d bought $960,000 in adverts in the Toledo, Ohio, marketplace, believing Majewski could acquire the district. They walked again that buy Thursday.

In marketing campaign appearances, Majewski represented himself as an Air Drive beat veteran who endured “tough” ailments in Afghanistan, where he states he put in months devoid of access to operating h2o.

And a biography released by the Residence Republican campaign committee attested that Majewski’s “squadron was a single of the 1st on the floor in Afghanistan just after 9/11.”

But documents posted Wednesday by the Linked Press present he was never in Afghanistan during his time in the Air Drive.

In its place, the closest Majewski received to the place was a six-thirty day period stint in Qatar, wherever he helped load planes. The vast majority of his active-obligation service was expended at Kadena Air Base ― in Japan.

Ohio’s 9th Congressional District is currently represented by Democratic Rep. Marcy Kaptur. Despite her standing as the longest-serving girl in the history of the U.S. Household, redistricting shifted the district to the ideal, placing her reelection at risk.
