Is it possible that there are two Waffen SS soldiers that are also members of Hitler’s most elite unit, the Republican “Young Guns”? The Democrats say so, on The Politico, so maybe! Let’s have a look:
Democrats are accusing Arizona GOP congressional candidate Jesse Kelly of “Nazi ties” because he accepted an endorsement from a controversial anti-immigration group — and Kelly’s campaign is responding with equal fury, saying there is a “special place in hell” for people who make allegations of anti-Semitism.
At issue is an endorsement from the Americans for Legal Immigration PAC, or ALIPAC, an anti-immigration group that Arizona Sen. John McCain’s spokesman condemned as “backed by white supremacists, neo-Nazis and anti-Semites” after it endorsed McCain’s primary opponent, former Rep. J.D. Hayworth. A Monday story in The Hill newspaper pointed out the ties.
National Democrats seized on the news. “Another [National Republican Congressional Committee] Young Gun candidate, another Nazi tie — it should come as no surprise,” said Andy Stone, a spokesman for the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee, in a press release Monday morning. Stone was referring to Rich Iott, an Ohio GOP congressional candidate who has dressed as a Nazi in World War II reenactments and is a member of the NRCC’s program to advance candidates in competitive districts.
