Nazis get their own lobbyist on Capitol Hill

No, not The Onion. And no, Santorum did not leave the race in order to take the job.

The American Nazi Party has apparently registered its own lobbyist on Capitol Hill, 2008 National Socialist Movement presidential candidate John Taylor Bowles.

U.S. News found the PDF document— which shows that Bowles registered with the Clerk of the House as a lobbyist on Tuesday—on LegisStorm.

According to the form filled out by Bowles, he registered as a lobbyist in order to pursue issues relating to, "Political Rights and ballot access laws." His form also reportedly cites accounting, agriculture, clean air and water, civil rights, health issues, the Constitution, immigration, manufacturing, and retirement as "general lobbying issue areas," according to U.S. News.

"I don't see why not," Bowles told the paper when asked if he actually thought a member of Congress would be willing to meet with him. "Of course I won't approach anybody in Congress unless it's a very interesting issue or law. I'm going to be very careful about the issues I choose for this."


I guess it depends which members of Congress he approaches. And yes, that is the same National Socialist* Movement that is the "civil rights oragnization" currwently "patrolling" the streets of Sanford, Fla.

3. Good thing he's not a communist.

He wouldn't be welcome. OTOH, NAZIs are always welcome.
