TOLEDO, Ohio — A report says a Republican candidate for the U.S. House of Representatives in Ohio dressed up in a German SS uniform to participate in Nazi reenactments.

The Atlantic magazine says Rich Iott, a favorite of the ultraconservative “tea party” movement in northwest Ohio, has taken part in the reenactments for years.

Iott is running in Ohio’s 9th District against Democratic Rep. Marcy Kaptur, who was first elected in 1982.

Iott says he didn’t mean to disrespect anyone who has served in the military. He says he’s been involved with historical reenactments from different eras since he graduated college.

The Democrats’ House campaign arm says Iott’s participation in the reenactments — and the fact that Republicans embrace Iott — sends a chilling message to Americans.
