UPDATE for the media:
My appologies to reporters who were trying to contact me. All media inquires can be directed to me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Wow, simply wow!
Here's what Josh Stanley said to the News-Times about his LONG history of racist and highly misogynistic Twitter posts.
I never would have expected myself to be in this positon where I would actually have to filter my thoughts..."
Filter your thoughts...so in other words, you never thought you would be in a posisiton where you couldn't express your TRUE feelings...classy.
But wait, wait...there's more!
Stanley, who was encouraged to run by his mother, Colleen Stanley, a member of the City Council, and Boughton, a seven term mayor, said he knew enough to go to his Twitter account to remove offensive posts as soon as he was nominated in May.
"I knew my stance on the social media aspect had to change," he said during an interview Tuesday night, before he cancelled his Twitter account. "I knew I could not be this person and run for office, so I took down stuff that was inappropriate."
Really Josh, you seriously thought about your tweets when you thought about running for office...well can he expalin this tweet that was done days before he was nominated?
There is MUCH more to come...prepare to be more outraged!
