Rich Iott, a Toledo-area, Tea Party-backed candidate who is challenging incumbent Democrat Marcy Kaptur, belonged to Wiking from 2003 to 2007, The Atlantic reported last Friday. The group staged full-dress re-enactments of Nazi SS maneuvers.The American Gathering of Holocaust Survivors and their Descendants said in a statement Sunday that donning the SS uniform was “profoundly disgraceful” and that Iott’s failure to apologize “desecrates the memory of all victims of the Nazis, Jew and non-Jew.”In an appearance on Fox News Sunday, Rep. Eric Cantor (R-Va.), the minority whip in the U.S. House of Representatives, said he would “absolutely repudiate that” when he was challenged on the issue by Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz (D-Fla.), a majority deputy whip. Cantor and Wasserman Schultz are Jewish.The National Republican Congressional Committee removed Iott from a preferred list of candidates on its website and the Republican Jewish Coalition said Iott was unfit for office.
