Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden endorsed Michigan congressional nominee Jon Hoadley Wednesday despite remarks Hoadley made in 2004 and 2005, calling women “breeders.”
Hoadley, who is hoping to unseat GOP Rep. Fred Upton in Michigan’s 6th Congressional District, also previously published a conversation on his blog which referenced four-year-old girls wearing thongs, The New York Post reported.The blog, “Rambling Politics,” was deleted in early August.
“Jon has been an advocate for working families and better schools as a state Representative for the last five years. He works hard for the people of southwest Michigan, and I’m proud to support his campaign,” Biden’s endorsement said.
“I hope you’ll join me in helping get Jon elected to Congress.”
The National Republican Congressional Committee called on Hoadley to withdraw from the race and has referred to him as a “pedo sex poet,” a phrase that the LGBTQ Victory fund said perpetuated harmful stereotypes of gay men as pedophiles, The Detroit News reported.
If elected, Hoadley would be the first openly gay member of Michigan’s congressional delegation, according to the Detroit outlet.
There is no place in Congress for the deranged musings of down on his luck pedo sex poet @jonhoadley. @CheriBustos & the @DCCC must disavow his candidacy immediately.https://t.co/UThRtsdv5S #MI06 pic.twitter.com/xOokNNr6Di

Hoadley’s campaign dismissed his blog as “bad college poetry,” The New York Post reported, and has apologized for his past comments.
“I said things 16 years ago that I would never say today. They are not reflective of who I am,” he said, according to The Detroit News. “For folks that I hurt with my words, I’m sorry.”
The NRCC has also criticized Hoadley regarding one of his blog posts referencing crystal meth. Hoadley wrote that he went to a gay bar to “learn about crystal meth” and its effects on the LGBTQ community, and ended the post by saying “don’t do meth,” according to The Advocate.
Upton, the dean of Michigan’s congressional delegation, has refrained from commenting on Hoadley’s comments, according to The Detroit News. (RELATED: Joe Biden Campaign On Behalf Of Fred Upton)

“The Upton campaign has had nothing whatsoever to do with Jon Hoadley’s own words being used in campaign ads by independent outside groups,” Nate Henschel, Upton’s campaign manager, told the Detroit publication.
Hoadley won a competitive primary to become the district’s Democratic nominee in August, and Cook Political Report rates his race against Upton as “lean Republican.”

A Rare Blue Moon Will Light Up The Sky On Halloween
(CNN) — Spooky season is almost upon us — and this year it will be a little bit spookier.
The night sky on Halloween will be illuminated by a blue moon, the second full moon in a month. The relatively rare occurrence happens once every two and a half years on average, according to NASA’s National Space Science Data Center.
Every month has a full moon, but because the lunar cycle and the calendar year aren’t perfectly synched, about every three years we wind up with two in the same calendar month.
October’s first full moon, also known as the harvest moon, will appear on the first day of the month. The second full moon, or blue moon, will be visible on October 31. It’s the first instance of a blue moon in the Americas since March 2018.
It’s also the first time a Halloween full moon has appeared for all time zones since 1944, according to Farmers’ Almanac. The last time a Halloween full moon appeared was for the Central and Pacific time zones in 2001.
The “once in a blue moon” phenomenon does not necessarily mean the moon will look blue on Halloween. While the dark blue tone of an evening sky can affect the coloring we see, Earth’s satellite will most likely not appear blue at all.
Typically, when a moon does take on a bluish hue, it is because of smoke or dust particles in the atmosphere, such as during a major volcanic eruption.
When the phrase “once in a blue moon” was coined, it meant something so rare you’d be lucky (or unlucky) to see in your lifetime, according to NASA.
So if anything unusual happens to you on Halloween, there might just be a good reason why.
