After being exposed as a Nazi enthusiast, Ohio GOP Congressional hopeful Rich Iott quickly became a national pariah, although the only member of his own party willing to publicly disown him was Eric Cantor, and he only did it when repeatedly pressed by Debbie Wasserman-Schultz on national TV. Now it appears Cantor may have been the one out of line when he denounced “SS Soldier Iott”: the congressional wannabee has gotten thousands of dollars in campaign funds this year from none other than the top Republican himself, House Minority Leader John Boehner. “Freedom Project” -- John Boehner’s Poltical Action Committee has confirmed that they are, in fact, helping fund Iott in his effort to knock off Democratic Incumbent Marcy Kaptur and they have no plans whatsoever of trying to recoup the money now that Iott’s fascist hobby has been revealed. Day after day we are seeing just how wacky these 2010 Republican hopefuls are. “The Young Guns” are more like the “Loose Cannons.” The more striking fact is: with huge pushes from the billionaire-funded Tea Parties and Fox News, these guy are not on the fringe! As we see in this case with Boehner’s contributions, old-line mainstream Republicans are having to embrace these crazies - the Republican Party has lurched so far to the right that Dwight Eisenhower, Jerry Ford, and even Richard Nixon would find themselves ineligible for election.
The Republican Party has lurched so far to the right that Dwight Eisenhower would not be elected!
