    The Chillicothe Gazette reports  Portia Boulger, a supporter of Bernie Sanders, filed a federal lawsuit this month.

    The Twitter account @voxday identified Boulger as a woman in a Donald Trump T-shirt appearing to give a Nazi salute during a March 2016 rally for Trump.

    Woods' account tweeted the photo and information, asking, "So-called #Trump 'Nazi' is a #BernieSanders agitator/operative?"
