Forget Collusion with Russia: This U.S. Politician is Under Attack for his Bigfoot Porn

With political partisanship in America growing ever stronger, and accusations of Russian collusion and association with White Supremacists seemingly having little impact on voter support, we’ve reached the point now where candidates are attacking each other over their predilection for ‘Bigfoot porn’.

Leslie Cockburn, Democrat candidate in Virginia‘s 5th district, posted the cryptozoology-related accusation against her opponent, Republican Denver Riggleman on Twitter today along with a photo from Riggleman’s (now-private) Instagram account:

 

The reason for the strange Instagram posting is apparently due to the fact that Riggleman, a retired Air Force intelligence officer who owns a Nelson County distillery, also self-publishes in the ‘Bigfoot porn’ genre on the side:

Riggleman ran a short-lived campaign for governor last year and has a libertarian streak. He says he’ll join the Freedom Caucus, but supports decriminalizing marijuana and opposes the locally polarizing Atlantic Pipeline project. However, the most curious element of Riggleman’s background may be a recently-deleted Facebook author page appearing to promote a self-published book titled “The Mating Habits of Bigfoot and Why Women Want Him.”

At least one Republican attributes Riggleman’s literary musings to his offbeat sense of humor. After all, his Instagram account profile reads: “Own a distillery, consult on DoD matters and had a fun run for Governor. Love whiskey, hate tyranny and embrace liberty. Whiskey Rebellion always!” But that account, since set to private, was once peppered with images of what can only be described as Bigfoot-themed erotic art.

If you’re a bit confused by the reference to the ‘Bigfoot porn’ genre in self-publishing – yes, it’s a thing, with some authors making tens of thousands of dollars a month “writing explicit love stories between various women and the mythical Bigfoot”, as part of a larger (no pun intended) genre of ‘monster porn’ in general.

I’m not sure if this means CNN’s and Fox News’ political panel discussions will now need Loren Coleman on board to keep viewers informed on cryptozoological weirdness – but I’m all for it!

  1. Hey, it’s like Cat Vincent said in her piece the other day:

    “These are hard times to be different from what is considered ‘normal’.” Indeed! You’ll get mentioned and implicitly mocked on The Daily Grail. Bigfoot erotica is just too far, I guess.

    My guess is that the justification for this pointing and sniggering, is that this person has ties to a “white supremacist”. Ah yes, the White Supremacist, now there’s a cryptozoological creature! No one can ever find one, but they’re everywhere! Trump is probably one! One day, we’ll find one, and get them to admit what they’re real agenda is: to rule over non-whites because they believe they (whites) are superior…or something.

  2. Who said there was any mocking? In fact, in the original piece before I cut it down in editing I suggested that, given the popularity of Bigfoot as a ‘myth’, this might actually bring in some votes for the guy.

    But there is a difference between mocking and having some fun with one of the stranger cryptozoological areas. And we are always up for having some fun here…lest we get too serious.

    As for white supremacists. Nah, there’s nothing mythical about them, they are (sadly) very real.

    p.s Cat is a guy. This week at least.

  3. “But there is a difference between mocking and having some fun with one of the stranger cryptozoological areas.”

    Hmmm, is there? When the context is a guy being called out for a sexual kink, and this guy has ties to a “white supremacist”? Seems more like a “Gotcha!” thing. Which implies there’s something to get. Which implies mocking/shaming.

    “As for white supremacists. Nah, there’s nothing mythical about them, they are (sadly) very real.”

    No, that’s not really true. Unless of course, you meant to say “white nationalist”. Or, “white identitarian”, or “white person who isn’t ashamed of being white”. Yeah, there are lots of those. And the quickest way to make more of them, is probably to keep talking about “white supremacists”.

  4. “p.s Cat is a guy. This week at least.”

    Right, I did see that. “Cat” threw me off when I recalled the piece and the name of the author. No offense meant.
