See if you can find the Republican U. S. House of Representatives candidate in this photo:
The individual second from the right in the photo is Rich Iott, a Tea Party favorite who happens to be the Republican nominee for Congress from Ohio’s 9th District. As first reported by The Atlantic, for years Iott donned a German Waffen SS uniform and participated in Nazi re-enactments. As noted by Charles W. Sydnor, Jr., a retired history professor and author, re-enactments like the Wiking group’s are illegal in Germany and Austria, and “If you were to put on an SS uniform in Germany today, you’d be arrested.”
In explaining his participation in the Nazi reenactment group, Iott said he joined the group over five years ago “as a father-son bonding thing.” Now maybe I’m crazy, but of all the possible father-son bonding activities I can think of for my son and I do to together, joining a Nazi reenactment group isn’t on the list.
