Colorado Republican Chairman Jeff Hays made some news last month in the wake of the Charlottesville Nazi attacks by offering up the following quote:
Raymond Garcia, the GOP candidate who lost races in 2014 and 2016 for the District 1 seat in Colorado’s House of Representatives, is a person who will believe literally anything he reads on the internet and happily pass it on without vetting. In this case, he posts an old “news” story from 2016 claiming a Wikileaks release proves Hillary Clinton killed James Foster as if it is brand new.

Facebook frequently acts as a soapbox for those who spew bigotry. We all know that guy. In this case, that guy is Raymond Garcia, a Republican who’s running for Colorado State House District 1 (and a Fever Swamp regular). Here are some of the times he posted something so racist, sexist, homophobic, or just plain crude that we almost forgot he’s an actual candidate for office.
I pick on Raymond Garcia (R – Colorado) a lot because he comes across as more of an internet troll than an actual GOP candidate for the Colorado State Legislature.
