An Ohio Christian college was not impressed with its French professor, whostaged a campaign ad mocking “electile dysfunction” in Washington.
J.D. Winteregg is a long shot candidate challenging House Speaker John Boehner in the midterm elections, but what he lacks in name recognition he is making up for in creativity.
Boehner’s oft-mocked surname was featured in his opponent’s ad, a spoof on TV promos for erectile dysfunction drugs such as Cialis and Viagra.
With puns galore and B-roll of couples gazing longingly at each other, Winteregg warned voters: “If you have a Boehner lasting longer than 23 years, seek immediate medical attention.”
“Other signs of ‘electile dysfunction’ may include extreme skin discoloration, the inability to punch oneself out of a wet paper bag or maintain a spine in the face of liberal opposition,” the ad continued, poking fun of Boehner’s eternal tan.
The zingers in the low-quality production may have earned the candidate cred in the “SNL” writers’ room, but his boss at Cedarville University — an independent Baptist school where he works as an adjunct professor — didn’t find it funny and fired him.
College officials told him “because of the nature of the ad, we feel we need to end the relationship at this time,” Winteregg told reporters.
The candidate suggests Team Boehner likely pressured the college to expedite his departure.
The school said only that the video “did not represent the views or values of Cedarville University.”
