SHARE ‘Electile dysfunction’ costs Boehner’s challenger his job

CINCINNATI — An Ohio Republican challenging U.S. House Speaker John Boehner in the primary election has lost a part-time teaching job at a Baptist college over an online political ad he sponsored.

The video posted on YouTube parodied a commercial about erectile dysfunction and suggested Boehner has “electile dysfunction.”

Challenger J.D. Winteregg of Troy tells The Cincinnati Enquirer that Cedarville University officials told him the school was ending its relationship with him over the video.

A university statement says the video didn’t represent Cedarville’s views or values. A Cedarville spokesman says Winteregg taught one online class each semester and those responsibilities ended last week.

The newspaper says Winteregg teaches French full-time at a high school. Winteregg didn’t immediately return a call Monday.

He is among three tea party challengers to Boehner.
