J.D. Winteregg has been fired from his adjunct professor position at Cedarville University in Ohio due to his colorful web ad, accusing Speaker of the House John Boehner of “Electile Dysfunction.”

Liberty candidate Winteregg is running for Boehner’s congress seat.

“Sometimes when a politician is in D.C. too long, it goes to his head,” said the voice-over in the commercial titled “When The Moment Is RIght,” which is made to look like a Cialis or Viagra commercial.

The “cure” for “electile dysfunction,” according to the commercial, is Winteregg.

“When using Winteregg, it’s important to note that the borders will be secured, Second Amendment rights protected, Obamacare and Planned Parenthood will be de-funded and common sense will be used in solving the nation’s problems,” said the commercial’s voice over.

The viral video hit rubbed Winteregg’s employer the wrong way: Mark Weinstein, a Cedarville spokesman, said in a statement that the video political commercial “did not represent the views or values of Cedarville University,’’ a Christian school in Greene County, Ohio.

“Cedarville University does not engage in partisan politics and holds a high regard for displaying Christian values in the community,” Weinstein said. “When faculty or staff members participate in political conversations, interviews, advertisements or endorsements, they are doing so as individual citizens,” adding that Winteregg “concluded his teaching responsibilities’’ last week.

According to the Daily Caller, 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.

Winteregg worked at Cedarville University for three years and was told last week that his contract would not be renewed.

The Washington Post reported that in an interview Winteregg said he was dismissed because of the innuendo-filled ad.

“They said because of the ad that my relationship with them will be done. It’s over,” Winteregg said Monday. “The ad obviously touched a nerve.”

For now, Winteregg is focusing on the election: “Now I just put my head down and work to win,” he said, “and hopefully I get that job in 2015.”

    Well that was a stupid move on his part… Jokes about genitalia are usually froned upon in Xian circles.

    He’d have my vote

  • DublinIreland

    I didn’t mind that part so much as the definitive statements such as “borders WILL be secured”…as though he is the man to get that boondoggle taken care of. Scoff, scoff.

  • Steve

    …which further proves that Boehner and the rest of the corrupt, embedded, “career” politicians need to be replaced…

    The Bible says not to be concerned with government and human endeavors at politics. It also says to work with your hands that you may be found blameless.
    It also says let your yes be yes and your no be no, make no promises for you know not what the future will bring.
    So all this phony Christian posturing is actually based on a twisted interpretation of what someone was taught by someone else, (the lying manipulaters behind the pulpits), it’s not scriptural, you need to study the Bible for yourself if you believe in that.
    Bible also says you are not to take anyone to court, especially an unbeliever. Where is the confusion? Happens everyday.
    Rather, you are to walk the extra mile, give him your tunic, turn the other cheek, pay for his hospital bills at the inn, leave the outer rows of the fields for the poor, welcome strangers into your home, feed the hungry, don’t be concerned about money, don’t judge others….
    This is not the example I see by either party in this issue, nor in America as a whole.
    So to me, those who profess to be Christian and promise to do what Jesus would do in politics are misled and are misleading others.
    God help us all from those who would use force to impose their will.
    (all reference to scripture paraphrased, look it up for yourself)

      So therefore, a Christian should not ever lead in a public position such as a president, governor, city leader? It requires wise men using God’s laws. We have the commission to follow God. Our Constitution is in place so we do not have a king. Now we have a King Obama who does not abide by the Constitution and is not only there for a tie-breaking vote and does not answer our representatives in the other offices of government. That’s where we are having trouble right now. We do not want a king, we represent ourselves.

      • Fletch

        If you want a Bible based answer, then yes, that means true Christians would not seek any sort of political position. True Christians look to God’s theocratic rulership (government).
        What did Jesus do when the people of his time wanted to put him in a political position of authority? *hint* It’s in the Bible.

        • tarandfeatherthecrooks

          Jesus was called to die on the Cross for our salvation. Who are you to judge if another is called for a time such as this? Judith was called, Esther was called, Mary was called to carry a child as a single girl, the Prophets were called to be outspoken and pissed off a lot of “rulers”, Jesus took a whip and turned over tables in the Temple. David was called to be a King. Your err, Fletch.

      • Dan

        Correct, because the government of man is subservient to the government of the Father, amd therefore, should be ignored altogether. Meaning, no contracts with the gov (SSN, driver’s license, passport, birth certificate, etc.) The church is the avatar of the Father’s gov, and is your governing body, if you accept it (nobody does, for lack of knowledge).

    do not permit a woman to teach or to have authority over a man, she must be
    silent.” 1 Timothy 2:12.

    So Cedarville better fire all of its female instructors as well (if they have male students) or they’re out of Biblical compliance.

  • Stacey

    LMAO!!! That was hilarious! lololololololol…

  • Derek Gray

    So the same people that complain about the 1st Amendment rights of Christians and Christian business owners being attacked are also the ones that attack their own for expressing his 1st Amendment rights? Complete nonsense. If this “Christian” college doesn’t realize the harm that is done to Christianity by big government goons like John Boehner on a daily basis…they probably aren’t a Christian college to begin with.

    • Austin

      They didn’t even use good arguments for why they fired him, If he never mentioned the school, and the school doesn’t participate in politics, then why is his statements, which were his own, and not representing the school at all, cause for him to be fired? Glad I don’t live in Ohio.

      • http://www.pixelgeddon.com/ Shane Stevens

        Their argument had nothing to do with the content of the ad and everything to do with government pressure. We’re seeing the true colors of the Fascist States of America more and more every day as people who stand up are threatened with some kind of retribution, be it legal, personal, professional or political. The chess pieces are moving and it’s up to the few awake Americans to finally stand up and put a stop to the runaway expansion of government before we’re all slaves in the nation our Founders fought to make free.

          Winteregg said they said it was over the innuendo. he didn’t speculate that there was any other reason. It is a private university. Individual rights and the right of self rule say that the Uni should absolutely have the right to fire him.

          But you are likely right it was political pressure. Just make sure you don’t allow yourself to be misconstrued as to say the man cant be fired for his 1st amendment rights. freedom of association is a civil liberty we should fight diligently for.

  • JK474

    John Boehner is rated by the conservative organization Judicial Watch as one of the ten most corrupt congressmen. He needs to go.

    And you have to love a candidate who makes an ad like that. Who were the woosies who fired him?

  • mikeyb

    Good thing they are a private university. If it was a state University … can you say Lawsuit?

    As advertisements go it is way over the top. that’s what makes it a memorable and good add.
