The spat between grassroots American conservatives and mainstream Republicans got nastier Tuesday when a group sent out a fundraising email portraying a leading party figure in Nazi uniform.
The mail from Tea Party Patriots featured a photo montage of Karl Rove -- who was former president George W. Bush's chief strategist and is still a key Republican heavyweight -- as an officer in Adolf Hitler's SS.
The image bears the marking "Reichsfuhrer SS" with "K.Rove" printed below. A Nazi swastika is visible on the uniform pocket.
