(WASHINGTON EXAMINER) — Rep. Paul Gosar , R-Ariz., suggested Thursday that George Soros, a major Democratic donor, was behind the August white nationalist rally in Charlottesville, Va., that led to clashes with counter-protesters.
In an interview with Vice News, Gosar initially said the Unite the Right rally may have been orchestrated by the political left, a claim he said was supported by the fact the event’s organizer, Jason Kessler, previously supported former President Barack Obama and attended an Occupy Wall Street rally.
“Let’s look at the person that actually started the rally,” Gosar told Vice News. “It’s come to our attention that this is a person from Occupy Wall Street that was an Obama sympathizer. So, wait a minute, be careful where you start taking these people to. And look at the background.”
The Arizona Republican then said Soros, who funds numerous liberal organizations, backs people like Kessler.
