WA GOP briefly hired white nationalist podcaster

The Washington State Republican Party this summer hired a far-right, white nationalist podcaster as a field organizer but said he was fired after the party became aware of his social media posts. Federal Election Commission filings show the podcaster, Greyson Arnold, was paid $821.87 on July 15, with the expense listed as “payroll.” The payment was first reported by The Daily Beast. Arnold has a history of racist, anti-immigrant and antisemitic statements that have been documented in multiple news stories.
