Wisconsin GOP congressional candidate Frank Lasee once posted a Hitler quote on a taxpayer-funded website

Back in 2001, the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel caught then-Wisconsin State Rep. (now-Wisconsin State Sen.) Frank Lasee having an Adolf Hitler quote on his state government website:

A lawmaker who posted a quote by Adolf Hitler on his taxpayer-funded Web site apologized Tuesday for doing so and ordered the quote removed.

Rep. Frank Lasee (R-Bellevue) attributed the posting to an error by his staff.

Journal Sentinel columnists Cary Spivak and Dan Bice reported Tuesday that along with quotes by Martin Luther King Jr. and others was this one from Hitler: “What luck for rulers that men do not think.”

Frank Lasee posted a Adolf Hitler quote, in which Hitler effectively called ordinary people stupid, on a website funded by Wisconsin taxpayers. That is flatly unacceptable, and whoever Democrats nominate in the 8th Congressional District of Wisconsin should use this against Lasee should Lasee be the Republican nominee.
