"Bigfoot" Porn? Comes up in congressional race

posted by Lightning - 

Did you ever think you would hear these two words in one phrase? "Bigfoot erotica"? Or "Bigfoot porn". Whatever phrase you want to say, same thing. Well that exact notion was brought up in a Virginia 5th congressional district race between candidates. Democratic candidate Leslie Cockburn accused Republican opponent Denver Riggleman of not only being associated with a "white supremacist" but also a "devotee of Bigfoot erotica". Cockburn tweeted out her disapproval of Riggleman and his so called interests:

We've all heard of political races getting dirty but this is a whole new kind of dirty! Riggleman denied all these claims and called them "absurd". However he did acknowledge that he has written two books about Bigfoot, one of which was an unpublished parody called, "The Mating Habits of Bigfoot and Why Women Want Him", which is clearly what influenced Cockburn's jab. 

As a result of the ridiculous claims, Riggleman stated or clarified that he does not believe in Bigfoot but also did not want to "alienate the Bigfoot vote" and the whole thing was a joke that he believes his opponent unfairly took aim at. In addition, his once public Instagram profile (where Cockburn copy and tweeted one of his photos from an unpublished book he posted), he now changed to private so that no more "weird comments" were left. However in a statement, Cockburn's campaign manager Louise Bruce believes it's really Riggleman "scrubbing his social media of 'Bigfoot erotica' and who knows what else." Wheww those people in Virginia...

Candidate Riggleman followed up with Cockburn's tweet by putting out a tweet of his own: 

All in all, you learn something new everyday and political races never cease to amaze me with the lengths candidates will go to win. I will say thank God this story has been readily available because I really didn't want to search "Bigfoot porn" on my work computer! That could have looked really bad...
