South Carolina Democratic Party Chairman Dick Harpootlian compared his state’s Republican governor, Nikki Haley, to Eva Braun, the longtime mistress of Adolf Hitler. The Coumbia State:
…Harpootlian, never a loss for a quick quip, tossed a few stinging one-liners at the Wednesday delegation breakfast.
On Gov. Nikki Haley participating in daily news briefings in a basement studio at the NASCAR Hall of Fame: “She was down in the bunker a la Eva Braun.”Harpootlian is not the first (or even the second) Democrat this week to make a Nazi reference involving Republicans. Pat Lehman of the Kansas delegation and California Democratic Chairman John Burton each did it earlier this week. Unlike the others, Harpootlian has a history of making controversial statements.
