Dinesh D'Souza And Wendy Long Once Had To Apologize For A Hitler Quote In Their School Paper

D'Souza, who campaigned for Long during her 2012 U.S. Senate campaign, was indicted Thursday for election fraud. The indictment did not name the candidate he was supporting.

According to an Associated Press article, the two apologized after an unknown staffer put a quote from Adolf Hitler's "Mein Kampf" into the "statement of principles" published in the paper and distributed on Yom Kippur

The full quote: "Therefore, I believe today that I am acting in the sense of the Almighty Creator: By warding off the Jews, I am fighting for the Lord's work."

Officials from the paper said the quote was put in by an unknown staffer and it somehow slipped by the editors.
