Rising Superstar of the Republican Party and member of the US House of Representatives, Rep. Anna Paulina Luna of Florida, tore into the fake newspaper, The Washington Post. As it turns out, every word in the story was a lie, including “a” and “the”. Not only did she dispute the story, but she also brought along the receipts that reveal the story was 100% made up like so many of their stories are.
The article claimed that she would lie about her ethnicity depending on which one gave her the best advantage and they also lied about her upbringing and her voter registration status. They claimed she lied when she said her father did time in prison. Her father Mayerhofer was incarcerated for drug charges in Orange County, California. Luna says she is no investigative journalist, but it only took her a couple of minutes to find the prison record. The Post accused her of falsely claiming to be Jewish.
But, her mother said that he had been a Catholic, but embraced the Messianic Jewish religion. Her mother also explained that Luna buried him, according to Jewish traditions. The Post also claim that she registered as a Democrat in Washington state. But in Washington state, you do not register by party.
“Holy s*** the Washington Post just tried to claim my dad was never incarcerated, left out comments from my mom, said I was a registered Democrat, and did not report a convo they had with a former roommate, and interviewed ‘family’ I don’t talk to. This is comical.”
The Post issued a retraction of one claim:
“A previous version of this story incorrectly stated that Anna Paulina Luna was registered as a Democrat in Washington state in 2017 based on an erroneous voter registration database. Washington state only requires voters to declare their party affiliation when they cast a ballot in a presidential primary.”
“Here come the receipts.”
“We have sent letters from my attorney to the Washington Post & Salon to issue corrections or we will sue. We are also sending to Vanity Fair, Business Insider, Yahoo News , Independent , any other outlet that reports false info.”
Republican Rep. Anna Paulina Luna of Florida ripped into a Washington Post article intended to smear her reputation, and the paper was forced to issue a retraction.
The article claimed that Luna had a history of identifying as different ethnicities based on what served her purposes and accused her of lying about her upbringing.
Luna also said she would go on Fox News to address the story and opined on the motivation for the dishonest hit piece.
“The left hates conservative minorities,” she tweeted.
Sorry leftists but I’m about to blow up your BS story. Tune in tonight to @JesseBWatters @ 7pm ! We have receipts. 🔥

Also, for the record, it would not matter whether her father was a practicing Jew or not. In the Jewish religion, the mother determines if a child is Jewish and Luna’s mom is Jewish, although I am not sure if she is a practicing Jew or not. I am a Christian and my wife was Jewish. Our son was Jewish by birth.
