McKINNEY, Texas (AP) - A Nazi propaganda minister's quote about truth is being cited by Collin County's top elected official as he seeks a second term.
The Nazi quote referenced by Collin County Judge Keith Self remained on his Web site Tuesday.
The Republican's mention of "Let's Try Some Truth" leads off by quoting Joseph Goebbels, saying "If you tell a lie big enough and keep repeating it, people will eventually come to believe it."
John Muns, who is challenging Self in the March 2 Republican primary, said Monday that he is offended that the incumbent would invoke a Nazi official's comments.
Self defended his use of the quote and told the Dallas Morning News that he did not intend to link Muns to Nazism, but said his opponent "was using the method."
