The campaign of San Diego Republican congressional candidate Carl DeMaio hired and hours later fired a new campaign aide after racist, sexist, and anti-Semitic tweets by the new employee were discovered online, reports San Diego Beat.
Former San Diego City Councilman Carl DeMaio, who is running for the Congressional seat held by Democrat Scott Peters, fired college student Blaise Hahs after tweets containing hashtags like ‘#smartniggaprobzz’ and comments such as “Who wants to drink Vodka tonight? Must have a vagina though,” were discovered on his Twitter timeline.
Ironically, the DeMaio camp retweeted Hahs’ announcement that he had been hired by the campiagn, with Hahs writing he was “beyond stoked that I’ll be a regional political director for Carl DeMaio’s congressional campaign.”
The candidate added, “Welcome aboard.”
Reporters and the Peter’s campaign immediately reviewed Hahs Twitter timeline, discovering a photo of a baby monkey with the words “Kim and Kanye’s baby,” and a picture of a condom package with the words “Israel, it’s still safe to come,” to which Hahs added, “Fuckin’ Jews.”
Hahs also captioned a tweet showing a sculpture of a cringing naked man with “Bitch, I said NO TEETH.”
Alerted to the tweets, DeMaio pulled the job offer from Hahs.
In a statement to UT San Diego , De Maio spokesman Dave McCulloch said, “After learning of this individual’s clearly offensive and inappropriate tweets, the offer of employment was rescinded.”
Hahs, a a second-year student and member of the Phi Psi fraternity at San Diego State University, has since made his twitter account private, sharing his comments only with his friends.
DeMaio is making his first congressional run after losing the San Diego mayoral race to former Congressman Bob Filner who later resigned in disgrace following accusations of sexual improprieties..
