Accused Nazi War Criminal is a GOP Donor

A Minnesota man accused of committing war crimes when he commanded a Nazi-led unit during World War II contributed thousands of dollars to the Republican National Committee, a Daily Beast review of federal campaign records found. Michael Karkoc is wanted for arrest in Poland after the country's war crimes prosecutors said they are "100 percent" certain that Karkoc commanded a SS company and that there was "no doubt" that his men razed two Polish villages, killing 40 civilians. After the AP published its exposé, Karkoc made three separate contributions to the Republican National Committee totaling $3,850 between September 2013 and May 2014. These are the only federal campaign contributions he has made, according to available records. The RNC did not respond to a request for comment. Karkoc's son, Andriy Karkos, told the Daily Beast the contributions were made only because Karkoc has been a "lifelong Republican."

Wrong to laugh, but it feels right.

Makes sense. Most republicans are lifelong nazis.

- "lifelong Republican."

He was ahead of the Party back in 1940's when Republicans were merely conservative corporate flunkies. Now that the hoods are off and the brown shirts are on, he's a model Republican.

I think he will need to keep up his funding if he hopes to remain in the U.S. under Republican leadership. If he slacks off it is likely that he could be renditioned to Poland.

As it appears he is guilty of this crime it is only right to send him nursing home or not as it is clearly a crime against humanity and it's not like he showed kindness or empathy to his victims...

Nothing new. Prescott Bush was Hitler's personal banker in the 1930's and 1940's. Republicans have been in bed with the Nazi's for a long time.
