Toronto city council candidate James Sears promotes online 'spanking' game against female rival

A Toronto political candidate has released an online game that encourages people to “spank” a partially nude cartoon version of councillor Mary-Margaret McMahon.

The interactive animation is available on the website of James Sears, who has registered as a candidate in Ward 32 running on a platform of cutting spending, as well as other promises including: removing fluoride from the drinking water; ending subsidies to events that “polarize the community” or “promote non-Christian values”; limiting the number of handicapped vehicle permits; and regularly drug testing all councillors and city officials. 350 more words
