Jonathan Capehart Bernie Sanders

Jonathan, in 2016, published a false accusation against presidential candidate Bernie Sanders, alleging that the Sanders campaign had been misrepresenting a photograph showing Sanders speaking at a civil rights sit-in in the 1960s.

Jonathan wrote that the Bernie Sanders campaign should “stop physically placing him where he existed only in spirit,” arguing that the photo showed another activist, Bruce Rappaport.

Danny Lyon, the photographer/documentarian of the event, refuted this claim and revealed other photos of Sanders from the sit-in, which are not in dispute and show Sanders wearing identical clothing and eyeglasses.

Many people expressed frustration with Jonathan accusing him of staging a “smear” of Sanders but Jonathan never recanted his accusation, instead,  writing a follow-up article titled, “Bernie Sanders and the Clash of Memory.” In this article, he juxtaposed Lyon’s testimony and photographic evidence with testimony from Rappaport’s friend Bruce Stark, who is pictured in the photo, and from Randy Ross, who wasn’t at the event but was married to Rappaport for 5 years.
