When our local politicians don't have illegal immigrants to kick around anymore, let's hope they don't take a page from Republican candidate Hans Zeiger in Washington state.
Essays and articles posted by Zeiger on different conservative websites were recently taken down. He said in this article from The News Tribune that they would distract from the campaign.
... House Democratic Campaign Committee noticed the missing articles Saturday, the HDCC said. The group opened its general-election season campaign with a news release questioning why the articles, more than 50 by their count, were disappearing. The HDCC said Zeiger was taking them down to hide his "extremist" views. Field Director Alex Hur said: "Voters deserve to know what a candidate’s values really are."
One of Zeiger's articles was critical of the Girl Scouts:
One might wonder why the Girl Scouts have been spared the painful attacks that have been launched upon the Boy Scouts by the Left in recent years. The reasons are simple: the Girl Scouts allow homosexuals and atheists to join their ranks, and they have become a pro-abortion, feminist training corps. ... If the Girl Scouts of America can't get back to teaching real character, perhaps it will be time to look for our cookies elsewhere."
