A Democratic Councilman in New Milford, Connecticut has been forced to resign after it became public knowledge that he is a “furry” fetishist who lists rape among the things he “tolerates” on an adult site for people who are into dressing up like cartoonish stuffed animals – often for sexual gratification.

Via NewsTimes:

NEW MILFORD — Town Council member Scott Chamberlain had never made a secret of his deep involvement in Furry Fandom, a subculture of adults who dress in mascot-like animal costumes, attend role-playing conventions and interact regularly online.

But an uproar ensued when a town resident posted on a community Facebook page several screenshots of Chamberlain’s profile from a private website catering to “furries,” many of whom participate in or write about unusual sexual practices. The profile includes a list of Chamberlain’s “loves,” “likes” and “hates,” some sexual in nature, but also said that he “tolerates” rape.

In an interview at midday Thursday, Chamberlain explained his involvement in the “furry” community as a harmless hobby.

“It’s nothing to do with sex; it’s an interest in cartoon animals,” said the first-term Democrat, who was up for re-election.

Riiight, he likes cartoons, that’s it and that’s all, except for the porn stories he wrote and published involving sexual adventures among people dressed as furries.

Chamberlain also writes what he calls a “soap opera” read by hundreds of users that includes furries in some sexual situations.

This is apparently what it takes to make people protest against a Democrat these days.

On Thursday night, as town Democrats held a previously scheduled opening ceremony of party headquarters on Bank Street, a small group of protesters gathered outside.

Among them was Rick Agee, the resident who had made the original Facebook post. He carried a sign saying, “No perverts running our town!”

”I have kids and grandkids in this town, and I don’t want him representing us,” Agee said.

And he’s gone:

Meanwhile, party officials removed a green sign saying, “Scott Chamberlain — New Milford Town Council” from the headquarters’ front window and peeled a Chamberlain bumper sticker from the glass door. Gronbach’s wife, Vanessa, ordered that a stack of Chamberlain bumper stickers be taken off the front table.

Democrat Scott Chamberlain is apparently pictured below, on the left (natch):

Whenever a Republican, at any level of government, is discovered to be an adulterer or some sort of other deviant, ALL Republicans are grilled about it and asked if they denounce said creep  – repeatedly – , so when do you think that Democrats on the national scene will be asked how they feel about the disgraced weirdo in Connecticut? My guess is it will happen at about half-past never.
