Boehner Tea Party Challenger Fired Over Anti-Boehner Ad

House Speaker John Boehner’s tea party primary challenger J.D. Winteregg has been fired from his position as adjunct professor at Cedarville University in Ohio due to his recent viral web ad accusing Boehner of “Electile Dysfunction,” The Daily Caller has learned exclusively.

The racy ad, which was a smash hit on the Internet, was cited as the direct reason for his firing, a senior Winteregg advisor tells TheDC.

When Winteregg began his campaign, he was told by many in the political establishment that he would never work in Ohio again. Winteregg needs between 40,000 and 50,000 votes in the May 6 Ohio eighth district congressional primary to knock Boehner out of his own re-election race in November.
