US Nazi Party registers first lobbyist in Washington

Washington, Sun, 15 Apr 2012 ANI

Washington, April 15 (ANI): The American Nazi Party has reportedly registered its first lobbyist in Washington.

John Bowles, 55, registered as the lobbyist on Capitol Hill, said that he intended to address the issues of 'political rights and ballot access laws'.

Bowles told ABC News that lobbying was something that the party was trying for the first time and will see if it would work.

Bowles' Capitol Hill registration also listed his lobbying interests as agriculture, clean air and water, civil rights, the constitution, healthcare, immigration, manufacturing, and retirement.

Bowles said he would not be paid for his work on Capitol Hill and would take a 'careful and objective' approach.

"I'm not going to go in and shove a swastika in their face," The BBC quoted him, as saying.

Bowles had earlier stood as the presidential candidate for the National Socialist Movement in 2008.

Lobbying is a common practice in US politics and lobby groups are required to disclose their interests in detail.

According to the report, the American Nazi Party traces its ideology to George Lincoln Rockwell, who founded a post-war National Socialist white supremacist movement in the US. (ANI)
