Ohio GOP Senate Candidate Refuses To Return Or Donate Nazi Reenactor’s Campaign Contribution

After learning that infamous Nazi reenactor Rich Iott donated to House Speaker John Boehner (R-OH) and Ohio Treasurer Josh Mandel’s (R) U.S. Senate campaign this year, the National Jewish Democrats Council and others demanded that they return the donation or “donate it to a Holocaust memorial.” Though the Republican Jewish Committee congratulated House Minority Leader Eric Cantor (R-VA) and other Republicans for spurning any affiliation with Iott last year, Mandel (who is Jewish) is refusing to return Iott’s $1,000 in campaign cash. Mandel’s spokesman dismissed the request as “a manufactured nonissue.”
