Connie Mack On the Record,Takes Back Nazi Reference to Illegal Immigration

By Javier Manjarres

Washington D.C.-Republican Congressman and U.S. Senatorial candidate Connie Mack has been pegged by grassroots conservatives as a distasteful ‘moderate,’ who backed Charlie Crist over Senator Marco Rubio and compromised his values and principles. With his recent Senatorial campaign officially off the ground, Congressman Mack is going on the offensive and looking to dispell any and all misconseptions about his voting record and conservative bona fides.

In a sit-down interview with The Shark Tank at RNC Headquarters, Mack came out swinging by stating that his political opponents were behind the false accussations, and that he couldn’t control what his political opponents would try to say about his conservativism, adding that he had one of the “strongest” conservative voting records in the current U.S. Congress.

Mack drew significant backlash from the Pro-Life lobby when he voted ‘Yea’ on four controversial embryonic stem cell bills in 2005 and 2007, including one to over-ride President Bush’s initial veto of the bill.  Mack explains the reason why he voted the way he did by stating, “What can be more pro-life than to help people like my grandfather who suffered from illnesses that Stem Cell research could help.”

In 2010, Mack made national news when he reference the Arizona Immigration Law to Nazi Germany, immediately putting the congressman on every conservative activists’ black list.  Mack continues to stand by what he said regarding the law, but he is now remorseful and said that he would take back the reference to “Nazis”.  Mack added that he opposed President George W. Bush when he tried to pass the infamous McCain-Kennedy Immigration reform bill in 2007.
