The controversy over an Ohio Republican congressional candidate who has dressed as a Nazi in World War II reenactments -- began percolating over the weekend with a Sunday morning talk show reference by Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz.
In an interview on CNN last night, Rich Iott defended his role in the reenactments and panned Republican Eric Cantor, one of the highest profile Jewish lawmakers in Washington --because Cantor sought to distance himself from Iott after Wasserman Schultz brought him up.
"You have one candidate in Ohio who actually thinks it's a good bonding experience to go re-enact Nazi battles with his son," she said on Fox News Sunday, questioning the quality of GOP candidates.
Cantor retorted that he would "absolutely repudiate that and not support an individual who would do something like that. I'm doing it right here."
