Jacob Dorsey seems an enterprising young fellow. First he was an intern for a group called Citizens for Decency, then at age 19 he decided to run for the Wisconsin state legislature. And he might have won, too, if not for the long track record of racist and homophobic statements he left online.
The first find was a tweet he sent out when a federal judge didn’t stop gay people in Utah from getting married (Dorsey is Mormon, you see) that said that “fags need to leave my favorite state alone.” When that came out a few days ago, he brushed it off and said that he regretted it and deleted it immediately. But then NOManiacs found a whole bunch more on his Youtube account. And it turns out that he hates Abraham Lincoln, thinks we need another civil war, thinks “niggers trash cars” and hates “gay, fag videos.”
And now he has ended his campaign. Still, his future is undoubtedly bright in today’s GOP.
