Boehner challenger loses job

An Ohio Republican challenging U.S. House Speaker John Boehner in the primary election has lost a part-time teaching job at a Baptist college over an online political ad he sponsored. The video posted on YouTube parodied a commercial about erectile dysfunction and suggested Boehner has “electile dysfunction.” Challenger J.D. Winteregg of Troy told the Cincinnati Enquirer that Cedarville University officials told him the school was ending its relationship with him over the video. A university statement said the video didn’t represent Cedarville’s views or values. Winteregg, who is among three tea party challengers to Boehner, teaches French full time at a high school.

Congressman is charged

Republican U.S. Rep. Michael Grimm, a former Marine and FBI agent who’s been the target of a campaign finance investigation, was instead charged on Monday with evading taxes by concealing more than $1 million in sales and wages while running a restaurant. Grimm surrendered to FBI agents early Monday. He pleaded not guilty through his lawyer in federal court in Brooklyn to mail, wire and tax fraud charges and was released on $400,000 bond secured by his Staten Island home. Grimm stepped down from the House Financial Services Committee. He told Republican House Speaker John Boehner he should be removed from the panel but said he plans to return once his legal issues are resolved.

Official says no re-election plans

Louisiana GOP Rep. Vance McAllister, caught on camera kissing a married female aide, said Monday he’s failed his family, let down his district and doesn’t intend to run for re-election this fall. In a statement, McAllister apologized for conduct he called a “personal failure,” and said he spent the Easter congressional recess reconciling with his family. Though he won’t be on the November ballot, the freshman congressman said he’ll serve out the remainder of his term, and he returned to Washington on Monday to resume work.

RICHMOND, Calif.

Crash occurs during maneuver

A collision between two planes that ended with one crashing into the San Francisco Bay over the weekend happened during a passing maneuver, a National Transportation Safety Board investigator said Monday. The lead investigator, Howard Plagens, said the pilot of a vintage Hawker Sea Fury TMK 20 pulled up to the left side of a traveling companion flying a Cessna 210 and heard a “thump”. Plagens interviewed the surviving pilot twice. The Contra Costa County Sheriff’s Office said searchers located the Cessna under 13 feet of water about 1½ miles off the Richmond shoreline east of San Francisco. The crashed plane and its pilot haven’t been recovered, and officials haven’t identified the two pilots. Both planes were returning from Pacific Coast Dream Machines, an annual festival at Half Moon Bay Airport that features a variety of planes, motorcycles and cars.
