Arizona Republican congressional candidate Gary Kiehne’s new ad is getting a lot of attention, but not the kind he had hoped for.
The Arizona businessman sent out a flyer promoting his candidacy as “the conservative choice for congress.” To prove it, the ad features Kiehne and several ranchers standing around a pickup truck in cowboy hats. So far, so good. Unfortunately there was also a very, very friendly horse standing behind them.
Some have speculated that it’s simply the tree trunk behind the horse that is perfectly aligned. You would like to think that wouldn’t you? But alas no, that is 100% the genuine article you’re looking at.
The horse’s penis is (probably) accidental, but the candidate has been in the news for other reasons for being… well… kind of a dick.
In May he angered just about everybody when he claimed that “99 percent of (mass shootings) have been by Democrats pulling their guns out and shooting people.” He wasn’t able to produce a single scrap of evidence to support that partisan conclusion. Later he was forced to apologize, saying the comments “were inaccurate.”
Voters will have a few more weeks to decide whether they want to elect inaccurate commenter and horse penis photo bomber Gary Kiehne or not before the primaries are held on August 26.
