Hillary Clinton campaign chair John Podesta, Democratic Party acting chair Donna Brazile and now former Congressman Henry Waxman (D-CA) all refuse to disavow the Democratic nominee’s endorsement by the chairman of the Communist Party USA.

But are they willing to at least reject the endorsement, albeit lukewarm, quietly offered by convicted pedophile Nicholas Puner this weekend? In his letter just published by the the New York Times Sunday Review “Reader Roundup” section he argued Clinton is the lesser of two evils.

Puner was responding to another reader’s letter that Trump’s candidacy portended the “twilight of democracy.”

“In the end no matter how unenthusiastic one may be about Hillary Clinton she is the better choice. Those disappointed and disaffected by the menu offered are still obligated to come to the table and partake in what is available,“ Puner wrote.

Hillary’s supporter “was the chairman of the New Castle Planning Board — which oversees Chappaqua, NY, where Bill and Hillary Clinton live — when he was busted” in 1999 for having sex with two teenage boys, the New York Post reports. He served sixty days in jail but later did nearly three years in the slammer for sexually explicit online chats with an undercover cop posing as a 14-year-old boy.
