Report: Virginia Congressional Candidate Admits He’s a Pedophile

Nathan Larson, an accountant from Charlottesville running as an independent candidate in Virginia’s congressional election, has reportedly admitted to being a pedophile and bragging about spousal rape online. In a phone call with HuffPost, Larson is said to have openly acknowledged operating the now-defunct websites suiped.org and incelocalypse.today—both of which reportedly hosted chat rooms for pedophiles and people with violent, misogynistic fantasies. “A lot of people are tired of political correctness and being constrained by it,” he was quoted as telling HuffPost. Among numerous posts written under a pseudonym, Larson is said to have once suggested “every pedo” should impregnate a “pedo wife” to create “fucktoys.” Asked whether he himself is a pedophile, he reportedly said, “It’s a mix of both. When people go over the top, there’s a grain of truth to what they say.” Larson, who has described himself as a “quasi-neoreactionary libertarian” candidate, also defended an essay about raping his ex-wife by claiming many women have rape fantasies, according to the report.
