CHARLOTTE, NC -- The chairman of the South Carolina Democratic Party Wednesday compared Gov. Nikki Haley to Hitler mistress Eva Braun.
Noting that Republicans are holding opposition press briefings in a basement studio at the NASCAR Hall of Fame, Dick Harpootlian told a South Carolina delegation breakfast: "She was down in the bunker a la Eva Braun."
Haley responded by calling Harpootlian "an angry, hateful man" who "embarrasses South Carolina every time he opens his mouth."
This isn't the first instance of a Nazi reference at the DNC.
Earlier this week, John Burton, the chairman of the California Democratic Party, accused Republican running mate Paul Ryan of using the "big lie" technique of Hitler propagandist Joseph Goebbels.
And Pat Lehman, the dean of the Kansas Democratic delegation, referred to Hitler himself when protesting Republican claims that they want voter identification laws to prevent voter fraud.
"It's like Hitler said, if you're going to tell a lie, tell a big lie," Lehman said. "And if you tell it often enough and say it in a loud enough voice, some people are going to believe you."
