Congressman criticized for video from Auschwitz gas chamber


Rep. Clay Higgins of Louisiana is drawing criticism after posting video of himself at the former Nazi death camp Auschwitz, including from inside a gas chamber, with political commentary. Twitter users accuse him of exploiting the deaths of millions. CORRECTION (July 5, 2017: 3:39 p.m. ET): An earlier version of this article incorrectly described the internet posting of a video that showed Rep. Clay Higgins in a gas chamber in Auschwitz. The video was posted to YouTube by Lee Johnson Media, which describes itself as “a Conservative Podcast looking at America of Today.” It was not posted by Higgins himself. (The video was later removed.)
