Paul Nehlen’s second run for Congress is continuing the roll in the gutter of his first campaign. Nehlen is running in the Republican Primary in the 1st Congressional District against Speaker of the House Paul Ryan, and Nehlen is using the same racial appeals that got him just 16 percent of the vote the last time.
On Tuesday, Nehlen used his favorite campaign tool Twitter to express his feelings on reforming the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) policy.

“Mo-Fo’s” is, of course, shorthand for an obscenity. Nehlen justified using the obscenity to attack young people brought to the United States by their parents when they were minors by pointing to a crime committed by one person in the program.
On Facebook, Nehlen upped the racist appeal by referring to Ryan as “Pablo” instead of Paul. When challenged on it, Nehlen tried to use his wife to deflect the criticism.
