Ohio Fuming Over New Name for Mount McKinley

Ohio Fuming Over New Name for Mount McKinley

(NEWSER) – Alaska Natives are certainly pleased that the mountain formerly known as McKinley is now officially Denali, the name people who, say, live in Alaska have called it for years. But those in Ohio, the home state of 25th president William McKinley, are peeved their man has lost the honor.
John Boehner says he is "deeply disappointed," Republican Sen. Rob Portman says it is "yet another example of the President going around Congress," and Republican Rep. Bob Gibbs slams it as a "political stunt" that's "insulting to all Ohioans," reports Fox News. Gibbs, who says he will "determine what can be done to prevent this action," argues the mountain can only be renamed with an act of Congress since a law was passed naming the peak Mount McKinley in 1917.
