Port of Tacoma commission candidate pulls out of race over racist, sexist Tweets

From KPUG 1170:

A former candidate says “insensitive, unacceptable and unkind” comments he post on Twitter about women, African-Americans and others is forcing him to pull out of the race.

Many of the tweets go back more than a year and show him praising President Donald Trump and blaming black people for crimes against whites and for not obeying police orders.

He also gloated about his wealth while disparaging others and made strongly prejudiced remarks against women.
