Liberal degeneracy is a topic that has been widely covered in recent years.  This hasn’t stopped some Leftist lawmakers from attempting to find new ways to shock however. As just this past week one Connecticut Democrat found himself in hot water even within his own party after he was outed online as being a Furry. If you don’t know what that word means, consider yourself lucky and stop reading now. For the rest of us, the picture below is a reminder of how the Connecticut Councilman liked to dress up when he wasn’t on official Government business.The man in question Scott Chamberlain, was actually in the midst of a re-election campaign before before his profile was discovered on the popular SoFurry.com website. While in the immediate fallout of his secret life being revealed, Scott remained adamant that his animal costume fetish was a perfectly innocent hobby. The voter’s didn’t seem to be buy it with calls for his resignation beginning almost immediately. These even included protesters gathering outside the Town Hall carrying signs stating “No perverts running our town!”. 

With all this public pressure it wasn’t long before local Mayor David Gronbach joined these calls formally asking for Scott to resign immediately from both the Council and other Boards and Commissions he had been appointed too. When asked about the revelations that had come to light Mayor David said only “As public servants, we are held to a higher standard and Mr. Chamberlain’s apparent posts do not meet that standard.”

Would you elect this man to Public Office?

In an interview with the New York Times, the now outgoing lawmaker stated only that he was “just saddened by this whole thing. I’ve always tried to be positive in my public life and work hard and donate my time for the people of New Milford.”  In the same interview however, Chamberlain also admitted to writing an ongoing erotic furry themed story on the website which he described only as being like a “soap opera”.

 

 

 

When the story first broke Mr. Chamberlain attempted to deny any wrongdoing telling a local paper “It’s nothing to do with sex; it’s an interest in cartoon animals.” He even went as far as to invoke the likes of Mickey Mouse and Tony the Tiger in his defense. The latter possibly being a bad example to use for this purpose though, given the characters long standing role as a gay furry sexual icon.

However, these defenses of a more innocent hobby were already ringing false given that his profile on the site also listed the former elected official as “tolerating rape”. This last bit seeming to be the breaking point for even the most otherwise understanding of citizens, as seen in the many online comments like the one below made on the towns official Facebook page. “Anyone is free to pursue any hobby of choice, however that doesn’t mean they can represent me as an elected official and endorse the things that are seemingly endorsed on that page.”  For now it seems Mr. Chamberlain is content merely to return to his beloved Furry community for comfort.  Having already returned to regular posting on the very site that got him into trouble, including a message of thanks for all the love and support he has received this past week from his Furry friends online.
