Trump's CEO accused of anti-Semitic remarks

(AP) -

The ex-wife of Donald Trump's new campaign CEO says he made anti-Semitic remarks when the couple was trying to get their daughters into a private school.

In divorce papers released Friday, Mary Louise Piccard says Stephen Bannon didn't want his "girls going to school with Jews."

Piccard says in a 2007 court declaration in Los Angeles Superior Court that Bannon said he didn't like the way Jews raised their kids to be "whiny brats."

Police records and court papers show Bannon, the former head of Breitbart News, faced a domestic violence charge in 1996 following an altercation with Piccard.

The charges were dropped when she didn't show up in court.

The couple filed for divorce the following year, though the case was revisited several times over the next decade.
