House Minority Leader John Boehner took on the conventional wisdom that it’s bad politics to associate with Nazi reenactors by campaigning recently with Ohio congressional candidate Rich Iott. That’s about the only public support Iott’s received from the GOP since his SS scandal broke.
Returning the favor, Iott, who’s running in Ohio’s 9th congressional district, now won’t say whether he’d support Boehner for Speaker.“I don’t know, we’ll have to wait and see,” Iott told Roll Call.
Iott’s not likely to win anyhow, so it probably doesn’t matter. It’s still unclear whether Iott has a different leader in mind.
