(Newser) – A Romanian mayor is facing calls to resign after he and his 15-year-old son appeared at a fashion show wearing Nazi uniforms and goose-stepping down the catwalk. Jewish organizations have demanded a criminal investigation, CNN reports. But the mayor had no apologies. "The swastika was very small and I didn't see it," he said. "I really liked the look of the uniform after seeing it in the Tom Cruise film Valkyrie."
