Bad News in Licking County
A swastika was found defacing a Licking County yard sign for Lawrence Cohen, a Jewish candidate for Ohio’s 12th Congressional District. Cohen filed a police report with the local sheriff’s office. He said he did not think that the swastika had been painted by anyone affiliated with any of his primary opponents, according the Forward. He is treasurer of the Tifereth Israel Foundation and a member of the Columbus Jewish Foundation’s Legal and Tax Advisory Committee.
