The American Nazi Party has registered its first Washington DC lobbyist, congressional newspaper The Hill reported on Friday.

John Bowles, 55, said he sought to help his "fellow Americans... practice their constitutional rights," and to use lobbying to convey the American Nazi Party's agenda to "elected officials in congress."

Bowles said he would not pursue US congressmen aggressively, saying he would instead use a "very careful and objective approach."

Topping his list of priorities are civil rights, healthcare and immigration, The Hill reported. He said he does not plan on focusing racial issues or using "racial slurs," but would rather stick to facts.

Bowles said one of his goals is to make it easier to get ANP candidates on the ballot, and to familiarize US lawmakers with the party.

“If they don’t hold my politics against me, I won’t hold anything against them,” ABC quoted Bowles as saying.
