John Boehner To Appear With Candidate Who Likes To Wear SS Uniforms
Add this to the list of things you really shouldn’t be doing the weekend before Election Day:
I’d thought Richard Iott had been put out to pasture after news broke that his main hobby was Nazi reenacting. After that Rep. Eric Cantor (R) denounced him. And then everything pretty much went down hill from there when he started saying that he didn’t think we were in a position to judge the SS soldiers who did all the cool stuff on the Eastern Front.
But apparently Iott is out of the dog House. And back in John Boehner’s House.
This Saturday John Boehner is going to appear at a special pre-election rally with Iott in Toledo.
From the Iott campaign website …
RALLY WITH LEADER BOEHNER
Oct 30, 2010
When: Saturday, October 30th 8:30 am – 9:00 am
Where: Lucas County GOP Victory Center, 10 S. Superior St, Toledo
Calling all Iott Volunteers! Please join us for this very special pre-election rally with House Minority Leader, John Boehner. What a great way to start off our pre-election weekend. Please wear any Iott gear you may have! Should you have any further questions, please don’t hesitate to call 419.324.[xxxx]
I don’t surprise easily. But who exactly told Boehner or someone on Boehner’s staff this would be a good move on the weekend before election day?
