Clay Aiken, known for his appearances as a losing contestant on American Idol and Celebrity Apprentice, tried to delete his offensive tweets from the internet when he decided to run as a Democrat for the 2nd District US Congressional seat in North Carolina.
Buzzfeed ran a story noting the more egregious tweets they found. But as SooperMexican has discovered, Buzzfeed conveniently left out the numerous tweets in which he attacks women, such as saying he wanted to punch conservative author Ann Coulter in the face and urged his followers to call her the “C-word.”
In doing a little digging around myself, I was surprised to find that Aiken’s first* tweet was sending a vulgarity to three celebrity women.

I’m sure they all thought it was in good barroom fun. But he deleted it from his account, because he surely knows the good people of North Carolina wouldn’t want a congressman that so casually and publicly uses vulgar, debasing language for a woman’s private parts.
In setting the tone for his account with this tweet, can you imagine a Rep. Aiken’s twitter account, sending such things to Nancy Pelosi, Michelle Obama, Sheila Jackson Lee or Elizabeth Warren?
