Andrew McKeever, a Durham, Ontario candidate, is the fourth NDP candidate to withdraw from this campaign.
As reported at Canada.com, McKeever posted comments on Facebook calling a war activist a "fascist bitch" and threatening to beat up another person.
McKeever said in a statement:
"Because of the repetition of comments I made before becoming a candidate, comments that I have already apologized for and profoundly regret, I can no longer continue as a candidate."
Heretofore, Jack Layton has defended McKeever and refused to remove him as a candidate. However, on Saturday Layton said that he accepted McKeever's resignation.
I first blogged about this story here. That was back on September 27 and it's taken this long for Layton to get rid of the creep.
