Brewer Tells Conflicting Story About Her Father

Arizona Gov. Jan Brewer (R) told the Arizona Republic that her signing of a tough immigration law has opened her up to what she says were "unanticipated personal attacks."

Said Brewer: "The Nazi comments... they are awful. 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."

One problem: The Arizona Guardian reports Brewer's father worked during the war as a civilian supervisor of a naval munitions depot and died of lung disease in California in 1955.
