Rep. Jerrold Nadler (D-N.Y.) called on Sen. Bob Smith (R-N.H.) and New York Mayor Rudolph Giuliani to apologize for their use of Holocaust imagery in their descriptions of the Elian Gonzales case. His criticism came after Smith referred to the Wye plantation in eastern Maryland where Gonzales is staying as a “concentration camp,” and Giuliani called the federal troops that took the boy from his relatives’ Miami home “storm troopers.”
