TROY, Ohio, April 15 (UPI) -- House Speaker John Boehner’s opponent in the Ohio Republican primary election on May 6 doesn’t have much chance of winning, but that didn’t stop him from taking a few low blows in a campaign video.
J.D. Winteregg released a spoof of a Cialis ad promoting erectile dysfunction drugs on Sunday that mocks Boehner’s “electile dysfunction.”
"Your electile dysfunction? It could be a question of blood flow. Sometimes, when a politician has been in D.C. too long, it goes to his head, and he just can't seem to get the job done," the ad says. "Used on a daily basis, Winteregg in Congress will help you every time the moment is right, to have your voice heard at the federal level."
Symptoms of electile dysfunction include: "extreme skin discoloration," the "inability to punch oneself out a wet paper bag or maintain a spine in the face of liberal opposition,” and golf.
According to the ad, "If you have a Boehner lasting longer than 23 years, seek immediate medical attention.”
The Cleveland Plain Dealer reports that an organization called the Tea Party Leadership Fund has spent more than $300,000 to back Wintereg in the primary.
Winteregg is a high school teacher and he does adjunct work at a university.
