December 15, 1965
See Original Daily Bulletin From This Date

The address nameplates listing the supporters of the American Nazi Party throughout the world are among the seized property of the George Rockwell group to be auctioned off soon by the U. S. Internal Revenue Service, it was learned today.

The Nazi office equipment and supplies were confiscated by the Government for unpaid taxes. Announcement of the exact date of the auction has not been made. Ten days prior notice are required by law. Rockwell meanwhile made known that he is attempting to obtain a Federal court order to prevent the auction and regain his records and equipment.

The Nazi leader today filed a damage suit for $100,000 against the Federal Government and named Treasury Secretary Fowler as defendant. He said he deserves compensation because of damage allegedly sustained when the Internal Revenue Service seized and padlocked his headquarters in Arlington, Va., on December 3. He made known that he is seeking a meeting with the Treasury Secretary to discuss a restraining order and injunction also sought by the Nazis to prevent the forthcoming auction of the Nazi properties.
