"Limbaugh pushes claim that swastika at Rep. Scott’s office was ‘fake': ‘I don’t buy this.’"

Yesterday, ThinkProgress noted that the Weekly Standard’s John McCormack legitimized fringe claims that the swastika found at Rep. David Scott’s (D-GA) office was “fake” by asking, “isn’t it more likely that this act of vandalism was committed by one of Scott’s supporters?” On his radio show today, Rush Limbaugh pushed the same idea, declaring, “I don’t buy this. This is too politically convenient.” “I think the Democrats are doing this themselves,” said Limbaugh. Listen here:

Earlier today, Scott told CNN that his office also received a fax with a picture of President Obama made up as the Joker that had a swastika on his forehead.
