Hamilton NDP candidate & Hamilton school trustee Alex Johnstone has apologized for a comment she made on a photo of Auschwitz one of her friends posted to Facebook back in 2008. The photo consisted of the electrified fence and its curved, concrete supports at the death camp. Her comment: “Ahhh, the infamous Pollish (sic), phallic, hydro posts – Of course you took pictures of this! It expresses how the curve is normal, natural, and healthy right!” In an interview with the Hamilton Spec earlier this week, she claimed ignorance, “Well, I didn’t know what Auschwitz was, or I didn’t up until today.” She’s accusing her opponents of mudslinging and has received lots of support on Facebook. Should she step aside like the others who are guilty of social media gaffes? Or should the voters decide?
