‘Bigfoot erotica’ takes center stage in Virginia congressional race

(CNN) In one of the more bizarre episodes of the midterm elections this year, the race for Virginia’s 5th Congressional District has come down to a fight over “Bigfoot erotica” and whether one candidate is into it.

Democratic candidate Leslie Cockburn tweeted on Sunday that, in addition to campaigning with a white supremacist, Republican candidate Denver Riggleman was “a devotee of Bigfoot erotica” — both charges that Riggleman denied in an interview with CNN.
