    if i was from iott's district i wouldn't vote for him. when iott was asked how did he explain potraying as an ss officer, he went around the question and didn't answer the question. he couldn't explain why he did it he just goes around the question with lots of words.

    Anyone who thinks; that dressing up as an SS Nazi and re-enacting the horrors that were committed against the Jewish people is just a "hobby" or "history" lesson; should read "Life of A Holocaust Survivor" by Kurt Ladner...my husband's uncle and the kindest, gentlest soul you could ever meet.

    Thanks for letting people know the truth behind this candidate.

    Nobody of his age would be so ignorant as to not know the history of the SS.

    I think it's outrageous the negative press this guys is getting because of this. I did a war film in college and a friend of mine worked with one of these guys that had a group that he did reenactments with. Wonderful folks. They love history (how many Americans understand ANYTHING of history anymore..?) and have a passion for bringing history to life. I am not planning on voting for any Tea Party member; probably never will. But this is really upsetting to me as someone who enjoys military history. If people that do reenactments are guilty of anything, it's probably a boyish fantasy to use their imagination.

    I think you did a decent job with this story, but it was still bent toward the idea that this guy was somehow a Nazi sympathizer... and that is most very likely NOT the case.

    Why are re-enactors of any war different from hollywood actors? There is a certain Austrian actor turned governor who has worn a number of uniforms in movie sequences that you couldn't vizualize in world war II or any other 'human' war.
