New London's mayor is demanding that a Facebook page be shut down after it posted a photo comparing him to Adolf Hitler.

The Day of New London reports that the administrator of the Whale Tales page said she did not believe the photo was inappropriate because it compared the speaking skills of Mayor Daryl Justin Finizio and Hitler. New London resident Kathleen Mitchell said both are "fiery orators."

She said she became aware of the photo Sunday morning after receiving a message from Facebook about inappropriate content. She said the photo was up for 30 minutes at most.

Mitchell said she does not know who posted the photo, which Finizio said was "venomous." He says comparisons to Nazism are outside the boundaries of acceptable behavior.
