John Boehner Slammed for Rallying With Nazi Reenactor Rich Iott
By Lucy Madison
Iott recently announced on his website that Boehner will appear with him in a rally at the Lucas County Republican Party headquarters in Ohio on Saturday.
Ryan Rudominer, spokesman for the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee (DCCC), condemned the appearance.
"Not only has John Boehner recruited, embraced, and financed a disgraced Nazi enthusiast running for Congress, but now Boehner is pouring gasoline on the fire by throwing a campaign rally for him," Rudominer said in a statement.
"Thumbing his nose at our nation's veterans, women, and people of the Jewish faith, all the while refusing to stand up for basic American values in order to try and win an election, apparently this is what Boehner meant when he said, 'We're not going to be any different than what we've been.'"
