ICYMI - Jon Hoadley Barely Pulls off Win, Overshadowed by Distasteful Comments

In Case You Missed It – Progressive idol Jon Hoadley barely squeaked by his primary against Jen Richardson. However, Hoadley falling behind wasn’t the only big shock on election night – the Detroit News reported that the State Representative had made inappropriate and distasteful comments in blog posts prior to entering into elected office.

“Hoadley's victory in Tuesday's primary comes after a story in the New York Post Tuesday. The story claims that, before Hoadley's election to state politics in 2014, he wrote blog posts discussing going to a gay bar to ‘learn about crystal meth,’ describing sexual partners as “victims” and an odd reference to a ‘four year old wearing a thong.’” The News wrote.

“Jon Hoadley’s radical and hateful comments are alarming and disqualifying, for someone who is seeking to represent our state in Congress,” said Laura Cox, Michigan Republican Party Chairman. “Not only are Hoadley’s policies completely questionable and out of touch – so are his actions.”
