WASHINGTON — Illinois Democrats in the U.S. House of Representatives have condemned U.S. Rep. Mary Miller for quoting Hitler in a speech on Wednesday.

“We, the duly elected Members of the Illinois Delegation, condemn today’s statement by our new colleague, Mary Miller,” Rush said. “This repugnant comment, on a repugnant day, is a black mark on this body and a black mark on our state. Mary Miller must apologize to her constituents, to the American people and to all who memorialize the millions murdered by Hitler.”
The other representatives included Jan Schakowsky (D-Evanston), Robin L. Kelly (D-Matteson), Marie Newman (D-LaGrange), Jesús G. “Chuy” García (D-Chicago), Mike Quigley (D-Chicago), Sean Casten (D-Downers Grove), Danny K.

The only prominent Illinois Republican to condemn the comments is Adam Kinzinger (R-Channahon)
