Irish Presidential Candidate Who Withdrew Over Pedophilia Scandal Back in the Race

 

CNN:

Sen. David Norris completed an extraordinary comeback Tuesday, securing the political backing he needed to get onto the ballot after withdrawing over a sex scandal in August, then changing his mind and jumping back into the race.

LifeSiteNews with background:

Despite leading in the polls, homosexual Irish senator David Norris is withdrawing his presidential bid after it was revealed he sought clemency for a former partner convicted of the statutory rape of a 15-year-old boy.

The revelation dealt a mortal blow to Norris’ campaign, which was also sustained damage when the candidate’s remarks supporting “classical pedophilia” were republished earlier this summer.
