COLUMBIA, SC (WCSC) - The chairman of the South Carolina Republican Party sent potential fundraising donors an email on Tuesday referring to the Internal Revenue Service as President Obama's "Gestapo."
The email, distributed by SCGOP Chairman Matt Moore, states, "South Carolina Republicans are fighting on so many fronts and need your help. We're working to defund ObamaCare, grow South Carolina's economy, expose and abolish the IRS, and get answers on the cover-up in Benghazi."
The top of the email reads, "IRS Obama's Gestapo" in bold red and black text.
The infamous Gestapo acted as the official secret police of Nazi Germany during the reign of Adolf Hitler.
