A Virginia Democrat is accusing her Republican opponent of being a “devotee of Bigfoot erotica” based on screenshots he appeared to have posted of a Bigfoot with a large penis.

Leslie Cockburn lives in rural Rappahannock County and is running against Denver Riggleman in the state’s 5th Congressional district, which includes parts of Charlottesville.

Cockburn, a former journalist turned Democratic hopeful, had previously criticized Riggleman, a distillery owner, for campaigning with the state’s GOP Senate candidate, Corey Stewart, a neo-Confederate.

But then she came across disturbing images on his Instagram.

Cockburn said that Riggleman was “not what we need.”
