Update to ''Outrageously Rude' Liberal Democrat Condemned'.
A Liberal Democrat parliamentary candidate has been forced to resign after pressure from a Conservative opponent over sexually gratuitous smears.
Last week the activities of Mr. Greg Stone, the Liberal Democrat candidate for Newcastle-upon-Tyne East, were highlighted by Jonathan Isaby on ConservativeHome. He had been using a pseudonym to post extremely personal attacks on Conservative and Labour MPs on the Guido Fawkes blog and his suitability to remain as a parliamentary candidate was raised by his Conservative opponent, Mr. Dominic Llewellyn who commented on his blog here.
Yesterday, Mr. Stone finally realised that his position was untenable and resigned.
