Vox.com, the website whose purported mission is to help readers “understand the news,” has defended Democrat Ammar Campa-Najjar from attacks by Rep. Duncan Hunter (R-CA) by calling the voters of the district racists.
Campa-Najjar is challenging Hunter in the 50h district of California, which stretches east and northeast of San Diego, from the suburbs to the desert. The district is traditionally Republican, but has become more competitive since Hunter and his wife were indicted for alleged misuse of campaign funds.
Campa-Najjar, however, has far left-wing policies and is the grandson of a Palestinian terrorist whom he once called a “legend” and a “public servant” (though he condemns his actions now). He also changed his name during the election, and took donations from a Palestinian ambassador and leaders of a radical Muslim group, CAIR,* to which his campaign also donated money.
Hunter, who protests his innocence, has seized the opportunity, calling Campa-Najjar a “security risk” and running a controversial ad accusing him of attempting to “infiltrate” the government. That has drawn criticism from a wide array of local and national media outlets.
