Congresswoman Claims To Be A Jewish, Is Actually The Granddaughter Of A Nazi

In a previous interview with the Jewish Insider in November 2022, Florida Republican congresswoman Anna Paulina Luna was exposed by The Washington Post for lying about her Jewish heritage.

In addition to almost certainly not being Jewish, Heinrich Mayerhofer, Luna’s paternal grandfather, died in 2003. According to several family members, Heinrich Mayerhofer served in the Nazi Germany military as a young man in the 1940s, according to The Washington Post.

“I was raised as a Messianic Jew by my father,” Luna had told the Jewish Insider, clarifying that she identifies as a Christian. “I am also a small fraction Ashkenazi.”

Luna hasn’t held back from using Nazism in her political internet speech. She posted a video in 2021 suggesting that a list of Americans who had not received the COVID-19 vaccine would be comparable to the Nazis’ list of Jews.

“‘Nazi Germany Registry’ of Unvaccinated Americans: Think About It Like The Jewish Star,'” she tweeted. 

According to the Washington Post, Luna, who is currently thought to be the first Mexican American woman to serve as Florida’s congressional representative, once identified as Middle Eastern, Jewish, or Eastern European.

The Post also claims that the congresswoman’s explanation of her own background and upbringing contained a number of other inconsistencies that led her to portray herself as having more humble origins than she actually has.

Luna’s genuine ancestry was recently made public, not long after it was discovered that US Representative George Santos had propagated false information during his campaign, including a claim that he was Jewish.
