In response to California Democratic Party Chairman John Burton's comments, Congresswoman Mary Bono Mack (R-CA), released the following statement:
"John Burton's comments are simply inexcusable. These outrageous comparisons to the Nazis and Joseph Goebbels should not be part of our public discourse. In a democracy, there will be always be disagreements over policy, but no serious person would ever say such a thing. He should resign."
