While claiming Jewish heritage, Anna Paulina Luna forgot to mention her Nazi grandfather

Since its debut last December, the newly elected legislator George Santos lied about 99% of his bio, new falsehoods and flaws involving the New York congressman appeared almost daily, sometimes hourly. (Latest? That he seems to make up the entire conversation with the Senator Kyrsten Sinema, and then charge with theft in 2017 after somebody wrote bad checks for about $15,000 in his name to a group of dog owners. While the charge has been dropped and the case has been dropped, the attorney representing him now says she believes he did it.) Given the speed at which these revelations have taken place and large amount of lies, seems unlikely at this point. Santos’ Republican colleagues should be able to outdo him when it comes to seemingly never telling the truth about anything. But at least one is trying!

Of course, we talk about Representative Anna Paulina Luna, who is the subject of a Washington Post show up that shows the 33-year-old Florida lawmaker played too fast and loosely with the facts regarding her background. For example, claims they both have Jewish heritage and grew up as a Jew, although people familiar with the matter say that’s not the case.

according to Parcel:

Luna also stated during the campaign and in an interview with Jewish Insider in November that although she identifies as a Christian, she was “brought up by her father as a Christian.” a Jew of the Messiah.” Messianic Jews identify themselves as Jews and say they believe that Jesus is the Messiah. “I am also a small part of Ashkenazi,” she added, referring to Jews whose ancestors lived in Central or Eastern Europe. Luna’s mother said her father was a “Christian to a Catholic.”

“He finally came clean and started attending a messianic synagogue in Orange County. He brought Anna to the service and she buried him according to Jewish custom.” Monica Luna wrote in a text.

However, three members of Luna’s extended family said that her father was Catholic and that they were unaware of his practice of any form of Judaism when Luna was growing up. George Mayerhofer’s father, Heinrich Mayerhofer, immigrated to Canada from Germany in 1954 and was identified as a Roman Catholic, according to an immigration record reviewed by the U.S. Attorney’s Office. Parcel.

Another weird thing about Luna’s claim: Judaism? A bit about her grandfather is said to be a Nazi. This is parcel again:

According to some family members, Heinrich Mayerhofer, who died in 2003, served in the Nazi armed forces as a teenager in the 1940s. One of his sons, Edward Mayerhofer—Luna’s uncle—provided parcel what he said was a portrait of Heinrich Mayerhofer in military uniform as a young soldier in Germany. Experts from the Simon Wiesenthal Center reviewed a photo that confirmed the uniform matched the uniform of a member of the Wehrmacht, the armed forces of Nazi Germany.

Edward’s wife, Jolanta Mayerhofer, and daughter, Nicole Mayerhofer, both confirmed with parcel that Luna’s grandfather fought for the Nazis. (According to Nicole Mayerhofer, her relationship with Luna went south after her father “publicly made conflicting points in Luna’s biography on social media during her first run for Congress, ” to which Luna responded by filing a request to spy on him, according to Parcel.)

Among the many lies Santos told, one of them involved pretending to be Jewish and having maternal grandparents. fugitive from the Holocaust. (The New York legislator has emphasize he never said he was Jewish but simply “Jew.”)

Other contradictions raised by parcel the article about Luna included a story about a home break-in that her roommate at the time said was a break-in when Luna wasn’t home; conflicting accounts about whether her father was in prison; and her upbringing, which family members say is not the poverty and isolation that Luna claimed.

The congresswoman’s office did not respond to a detailed list of questions posed by Parcel; Her communications director emailed the store saying the questions were “weird,” adding, “Our office will no longer answer you.” On Twitter on Friday, Luna emphasized that aspects of parcel inaccurate story (she does not appear to specifically respond to the report about her grandfather and her alleged upbringing — and legacy — as a Jew).
