Mike Kusneraitis is a member of Rummeymade Borough Council in Surrey, England. What brings him to today’s blog entry, you ask? Well, Facebook posts like this:
This is one of several racist and sexist Facebook posts that Kusneraitis made on Facebook; according to media reports, he also uploaded pictures of a dog with a towel on its head (gee, I wonder what he was implying there) and “sexually explicit cartoons.” The posts, which were uploaded to a Facebook page called “Peoples Front of Eglam,” have since been deleted, and the group is no longer visible.
To his credit, Kusneraitis released a pretty comprehensive apology statement (save for the fact that he is apologizing only to people who he offended, my personal apology pet peeve):
That being said, the apology may not be enough to keep Kusneraitis out of trouble. Kusneraitis, who is a member of the Tory party, is now under investigation from local party officials.
The lesson, here, is too obvious for me to need to type anything else.
