Political candidate caught peeing in coffee mug in someone else’s kitchen is no longer a political candidate, for some reason

Oops! 🙂

A service technician caught on hidden camera urinating into a coffee mug during a 2012 house call to repair a leaky sink before he became a Conservative federal election candidate is no longer running, the Tories said today.

Jerry Bance “is no longer a candidate,” said Conservative spokesman Stephen Lecce in a brief email to CBC News on Monday.

The original Marketplace episode had referred to Bance — who owns and operates XPress Appliance Service, an appliance repair company in the Greater Toronto Area — only as “Jerry.” A tip received by CBC News late Sunday night pointed out Jerry is Bance.

Response to the story on social media sites was nearly instantaneous. The hashtag “peegate” was soon trending on Twitter, as Twitter buzzed with disparaging jokes, comments and bad puns targeting Bance and the Conservative Party.

And there goes his business, too.

All his fortunes, down the drain. 😉
