|Description||TORONTO -- The Liberal Party is standing by a Nova Scotia candidate who apologized after a series of sexist and homophobic social media posts resurfaced. |
The Toronto Sun reported Friday on a series of posts dating back to 2012 from Jaime Battiste, the candidate for the Nova Scotia riding of Sydney-Victoria.
Battiste has since made his Twitter account private. But in one tweet, according to the newspaper, Battiste wrote: “Cleaning, Folding, Cooking, Feeling like an Epic Fail that i havent found a woman who can stand me long enough to do this for me. #FML”
In another uncovered by the Sun, he wrote: “Why do I assume every skinny aboriginal girl is on crystal meth or pills? #toomuchaptn.”
Battiste also joked about watching men’s tennis, suggesting it sounds “exactly like gay porn…I’m told.”
