Even as Rep. Allen West (R-Fla.) was chasing phantom communists in Washington, the Nazis stormed into Washington - to lobby.
The party has even created a web site - "The White People's Voice to Congress and the White House" - to track its lobbying activity. It proclaims that registering to lobby "propels the American Nazi Party into the lead as a now first-class minor political party in America."
It's not the first time Bowles has tried to change policy on behalf of the party. He filed as a presidential candidate in 2008.
Nazis, however, were not the big news in Washington this week. Instead, it was communists, thanks to the claim by Rep. West that "there's about 78 to 81 members of the Democratic Party that are members of the Communist Party." He followed up by saying he was referring to members of the Congressional Progressive Caucus.
