Young Turks Founder Running for Katie Hill's Seat Posted Crude, Sexual ‘Rules’ for Women

The Young Turks founder Cenk Uygur, who is running for former Rep. Katie Hill’s (D-CA) vacant seat in California’s 25th Congressional District, posted crude and sexual “rules for women” online, which resurfaced on Friday.

Uygur, who also co-founded Justice Democrats, announced his bid to replace Hill on Thursday:

Uygur apologized for his crude post in 2017, calling it “insensitive and ignorant” and claiming that he was a “different guy,” according to TheWrap:

“If you read that today, what I wrote 18 years ago, and you’re offended by it, you’re 100 percent right.
