Texas Rep. paid a gospel singer. Records show the money went to an antisemite – The Jerusalem Post

Posted By on June 18, 2021

Louis Gohmert, the Texas congressman on the GOPs far right, said he wanted to pay Steve Amerson, who sings gospel.

Instead, federal documents show, the money went to Steve Anderson, who spews antisemitism.

A staffer botched an internet search in making the filing to the Federal Election Commission, Gohmerts chief of staff told The Daily Beast this week. Connie Hair said the $5,500 that Gohmerts campaign paid indeed went to Amerson, a California-based Christian singer, for performing at a fundraiser in December.

But a staffer entered the amount on the FEC forms as going to Steve Anderson, the pastor who helms the Faithful Word Baptist Church in Tempe, Arizona. Hair said the staffer is amending the form.

The Daily Beast listed a number of statements in which Anderson celebrated the deaths of gay people, and sermons with titles like The Jews Are Our Enemies, The Jews Killed Jesus and Jewish Synagogue = Synagogue of Satan.
