John Burton Says He Never Used the Word "Nazi" When Talking About the GOP
Burton, the chairmain of the California Democratic Party, issued a sincere apology to the GOP yesterday, which is news in itself since the loose-lipped Dem is more known for his colorful comments than for expressing remorse for them.
"If Mitt Romney, Paul Ryan, or the Republicans are insulted by my describing their campaign tactic as the big lie -- I most humbly apologize to them or anyone who might have been offended by that comment."
But for the record, Burton said, he never uttered the word "Nazi."
"To be clear I did not call Republicans Nazis, nor would I ever," Burton said in a statement. "In fact, I didn't even use the word."
No, but he did use the name Joseph Goebbels, which is synonymous with "Nazi."
