Controversy and resignation
Harty, 91, resigned after telling a constituent that the disabled should be shipped to Siberia. The constituent responded that this sounded like a position Hitler might take. Harty acknowledged that he agreed with Hitler on the issue. After the ensuing controversy, Harty said he only made the comments in jest.
