It is specified that he made anti-Semitic threats against the family doctor Neeli Kaplan-Myrth, who is running in the local municipal elections for the school board trustees. “This morning a man called me in my office and called me a 'fucking Jewess'” for speaking as a family doctor on The Agenda talk show about the importance of masks and other things related to COVID.
