Schumer Spokesman Fires Back At Norquist Over Nazi Comparison

Sen. Chuck Schumer’s (D-NY) spokesman Brian Fallon hit back at Grover Norquist after the anti-tax activist compared the senator’s anti-tax-dodging bill to the actions of Nazis.

“When even Speaker Boehner feels free to openly disagree with Grover Norquist, it is official that literally no one cares what Norquist thinks on this issue,” Fallon told TPM in an email Monday.

Speaker John Boehner hedged Sunday and said he may support the so-called Ex-PATRIOT Act.
