GOP Leader Criticizes Candidate for Nazi Uniform

Sunday, 10 Oct 2010 11:27 AM

WASHINGTON (AP) — A top congressional Republican is criticizing a House GOP candidate from Ohio who wore a Nazi uniform during reenactments of World War II battles.

The Atlantic magazine reported last week that Ohio Republican Rich Iott has participated in the reenactments wearing a Waffen-SS uniform since 2003. Iott says he has been a historical reenactor in other venues for many years.

House Republicans' No. 2 leader, Eric Cantor of Virginia, says he repudiates Iott's actions and would not support someone who would do that.

Cantor's remarks came after Democratic Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz of Florida cited Iott as an example of GOP candidates she said are extreme.

Cantor and Wasserman Schultz appeared on "Fox News Sunday."
