Jersey City Assemblyman and Democrat Charles Mainor is discovering that a simple lil' click can have complicated repercussions.
Mainor's in trouble with some constituents for having "liked" two rather adolescent Facebook pages. One is dubbed "Big Bootie Freaks," a site New Jersey Online describes
as being "filled with photos of women with large derrieres." The other, entitled "You Got Knocked the F*ck Out Man," features violent videos of strangers being assaulted.
Mainor, who also works as a police detective, only admits to having "liked" the less sexy of the two sites, and claims the motivation for calling him out on the activity stems from his recent support for anti-gun measures:
"They're trying to discredit me in some kind of way because I agreed with the gun deals that I pushed through," said Mainor, who's also chair of New Jersey's Assembly Law and Public Safety Committee. "We're losing babies, and if the best they can do is come back and say, 'He shouldn't have Big Bootie Freaks,' then I say, 'Hey, you shouldn't have guns.'"
As for when he plans to "unlike" the provocative sites, Mainor says that'll happen just as soon as his daughter shows him how.
