Ohio Republican group posts images of gallows, nooses, on Facebook

A faction in Summit County. They have gone way over the top and apparently don’t care who sees it any more.

Summit County is in NE Ohio and includes Akron.

The Summit County Republican Party has disavowed a now-removed Facebook post suggesting that gallows with nooses be used as a “Government Repair Kit.”

The post appeared on the “Summit County Ohio Republicans" Facebook page, which Andrew Shehorn, executive director of the Summit County GOP, said is not affiliated or controlled by the local party.

Screenshots of the post have caused a stir on social media and prompted questions about the local party’s role. Summit County GOP Chairman Bryan Williams rebuked and disowned the post on Monday, making a statement on the party’s official Facebook page called “Summit County Republican Party.”

“This evening, I was made aware of a Facebook page referring to itself as ‘Summit County Ohio Republicans.’ This page has hosted reprehensible images including those advocating for violence, as well as vulgar disparagements directed towards various elected officials and candidates for office," Williams wrote. "To be clear, this page is in no way affiliated with the Summit County Republican Party and I find its content to be crude, classless and dangerous.
