CHARLOTTE, N.C. — Pat Lehman, the “dean of the Kansas delegation” and the president of the Kansas Democratic Labor Committee, is the latest Democrat to compare Republicans playing loose with the truth to Nazis.
In an interview with The Wichita Eagle, Lehman invoked Adolf Hitler to argue that Republicans are lying when they say voter ID efforts are designed to combat voter fraud.
“It’s like Hitler said, if you’re going to tell a lie, tell a big lie, and if you tell it often enough and say it in a loud enough voice, some people are going to believe you,” Lehman said.
