Congressional Hopeful Stands By Old Blog Posts

Congressional Hopeful Stands By Old Blog Posts
MINNEAPOLIS, MN -

Republican congressional hopeful Jim Hagedorn is standing by his years-old blog posts where he lambasted women, American Indians, gays and national political figures.

In a 2002 "masterpiece analysis," Hagedorn called two female senators from Washington "bimbos in tennis shoes."

The posts were written between 2002 and 2008 on a now-defunct blog titled "Mr. Conservative."

In his many commentaries, he also railed against gay marriage and accused Democrats in South Dakota of using deceased American Indians' names on absentee ballots.

Asked whether he owed voters an apology, he told the newspaper he did not. Hagedorn defended his opinions as humorous and satirical, saying he criticized politicians of all stripes, not just Democrats.

Hagedorn is running against four-term incumbent U.S. Rep. Tim Walz, a Democrat.
