"GOP hopeful defends comment on Nazi, Israeli flags"

Quoted in this article in the San Francisco Chronicle.

Jessica Levinson, a professor of political law at Loyola Law School in Los Angeles, said it appeared that Donnelly "was just calling out two sides of the debate" when he said he would allow the sale of the Nazi flag, the Israeli flag or any other flag in a state-run store.

"It's completely defensible to say, 'There are good things, there are bad things, and I won't vote to ban any of them,' " Levinson said. "But when voters hear it together, that's not how it plays."

She added, "Whenever a comparison is made to Hitler or Nazis, it's never good politics."
