Black AU Student Seeks $1.5M in Damages From Neo-Nazi Website Founder

American University’s first Black female student government president seeks more than $1.5 million in court-awarded damages from the founder of a neo-Nazi website accused of harassing her with racially charged messages.

Taylor Dumpson asked a federal judge in D.C. this week for a default judgment against The Daily Stormer founder Andrew Anglin and one of his followers, Brian Andrew Ade, for coordinating a hate-fueled campaign against her in 2017 after she was elected.

Dumpson, a Salisbury, Md., native, sued Anglin in April 2018 for more than $1.8 million, including $1.5 million in punitive damages. Neither Anglin nor the follower responded to the suit.

Dumpson said the harassment began the day after taking office in May 2017 when someone hung bananas scribed with hateful and threatening messages from nooses around the northwest D.C. campus.

Dumpson resigned in January 2018 before graduating and enrolling in law school.
