Dem candidate was member of anti-Semitic, anti-black club in South Africa that invited Apartheid figure ‘Dr Death’ for ‘motivational talk’
Scott Wallace, a liberal millionaire candidate running for Congress in Pennsylvania, was a member of a controversial private club in South Africa that used to discriminate against Jewish and black people and invited controversial speakers, including former head of the Apartheid chemical and biological warfare program.
Wallace, grandson of a former vice president who’s running as a Democrat in Pennsylvania’s 1st Congressional District against Republican incumbent Rep. Brian Fitzpatrick, has been living in South Africa since the mid-2000s and has called it his “second country.”
During his time in the country, sometime around 2014, Wallace became a member of the Kelvin Grove club in Cape Town, an exclusive members-only club whose motto is “Respecting The Past, Embracing The Future.”
The past that the club say it respects is notorious. Due to its strict membership policies, including asking two existing members to vouch for you, the club effectively barred Jewish and black people from becoming members for decades.
A 2004 Cape Argus newspaper published a photograph taken in the 1940s that asserted the club’s anti-Semitic past. “In the foreground, the Kelvin Grove club looks like a large farmstead at the centre of thickly hedged cultivation.
How can this guy be elected now?
