PHOENIX — Gov. Jan Brewer was criticized Wednesday for saying in an interview that her father “died fighting the Nazi regime in Germany” when he actually died in the 1950s. Her father was a munitions worker in Nevada during the war and died after years of breathing poisonous fumes around harsh chemicals. State Democratic Party spokeswoman Jennifer Johnson accused Brewer, a Republican, of embellishing the circumstances of her father’s death to cast herself in a more sympathetic light after signing Arizona’s controversial new illegal immigration law. The signing subjected Brewer to personal attacks, including comments comparing her with Nazis.”Knowing that my father died fighting the Nazi regime in Germany, that I lost him when I was 11 because of that … and then to have them call me Hitler’s daughter. It hurts. It’s ugliness beyond anything I’ve ever experienced,” she said.
