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:
“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.
