‘Please can I move on?’ - A donkey, perhaps as curious as this one, has been by British parliamentarian John Rees-Evans of trying to rape his horse.
When candidates run for or hold prominent political office, they often have to reconcile with some of their darker moments.
U.S. President Barack Obama, for example, admitted in his first memoir that he had snorted cocaine earlier in life. Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump is currently parrying accusations he sexually assaulted multiple women by threatening to sue them after the election. Former British Prime Minister David Cameron consistently had to field questions about whether he had, in fact, engaged in sexual acts with a dead pig.
Sometimes just saying sorry is the easiest way to move on. So on Monday, after British lawmaker John Rees-Evans announced his candidacy for leader of the right-wing U.K. Independence Party, he apologized for his 2014 claim that a homosexual donkey had raped his pet stallion.
