Anti-Semitic fliers found at D.C. homes
A day after anti-Semitic fliers papered a neighborhood in Chevy Chase, Md., similar fliers turned up in a D.C. neighborhood, and people across the region said they had also seen the hateful leaflets at their doorsteps.
Multiple people in the Takoma neighborhood in Northwest Washington contacted The Washington Post to say they had found the flier — a two-page compilation of declarations about Jews and falsified quotations — Thursday morning.
Post readers said they had seen the flier at their homes in D.C. neighborhoods that include Bloomingdale, Cleveland Park, Friendship Heights, Georgetown and Mount Pleasant; in other neighborhoods in Chevy Chase; and in Arlington and Alexandria in Virginia.
