Cedarville University has fired J.D. Winteregg, an adjunct professor of French, over an online video used in his Republican primary challenge to John Boehner, speaker of the House of Representatives, The Cincinnati Enquirer reported. Winteregg, who has Tea Party backing, has an ad that is a parody of a Cialis commercial about treating erectile dysfunction. In the Winteregg ad, Boehner's name is mocked and he is said to have "electicle dysfunction." In a statement confirming that Winteregg was no longer teaching, Cedarville said that the university "does not engage in partisan politics and holds a high regard for displaying Christian values in the community."
