Canadian Candidate Withdraws After Racy Facebook Photos

A British Columbia New Democratic Party Candidate ended his candidacy after two racy images of him on Facebook became public.

Ray Lam said in a statement:      

raylam“I regret this material and the associated comments that have now become public.”

“I do not want this to be a distraction in the election campaign and have advised the party that I am stepping down.”

Lam had made an unofficial bid for city council last year. He intended to run on a platform of youth, environmental, gay and lesbian issues.

When he announced his candidacy, Lam said, “I have a lot of ideas around sustainability and youth. I don’t want to be branded as the gay councillor.”

To avoid that he should have kept his pants up.

    Just goes to show that the consequences of ‘youthful indiscretion’ are now more serious than ever.
