Well shockingly enough saying those kinds of things on Twitter is NOT a sure fire road to victory.
Courtesy of TPM:
A New Jersey Republican ended his campaign for local office Tuesday following reports that he called online for the rape of a Washington-based reporter for news and opinion website The Daily Beast.
Mike Krawitz, who was running for the township council in West Deptford, sent a handwritten resignation note to the party Tuesday saying he was dropping out.
I LOVE this dipshit's excuse.
On Monday, Krawitz told The Philadelphia Inquirer that his account was hacked and that he didn't make the comment on journalist Olivia Nuzzi's Facebook account.
That's right he claims he was hacked, which is apparently the go to douchebag answer when you get called out for being a douchebag.
But Nuzzi, a New Jersey native, said she has been harassed on social media by Krawitz since December 2015. Krawitz's recent comment said: "I. Hope. Somebody. Rapes. You. Today. :)."
Krawitz's account also posted a comment that said: "Hope. You. Get. Raped. By. A. Syrian. Refugee. :)."
Bob Waller, chairman of the West Deptford Republican Committee, said in a statement before Krawitz stepped down that there is "no reasonable reason" to believe Krawitz was hacked. He had called on Krawitz step down.
Damn don't you wish that ALL of the GOP misogynists would blow their stupidity load early on Twitter so that the party could cull them from the herd before election day?
Now if only the national Republican party would have demonstrated that much integrity in response to Donald Trump's tweets.
