Over In Ukraine.

It seems that Mayor of Uzhgorod, Sergey Ratushnyak is running for the Presidency of the Ukraine.

Ratushnyak is a rather unsavoury individual, the Kyiv Post reports:

“Serhiy Ratushnyak, known for his combative behavior, is facing a criminal investigation.

Uzhgorod Mayor Serhiy Ratushnyak, known for combative behavior, may have outdone himself this month.

First, on Aug. 6, Ratushnyak allegedly physically attacked a woman – an activist for presidential candidate Arseniy Yatseniuk. Ratushnyak reportedly knocked down a Yatseniuk tent after Natalya Butrymko, 21, failed to produce government permits for setting it up and handing out campaign flyers.

Ratushnyak denied the assault, but then disgusted people even more by calling the woman “a stripper” and referring to Yatseniuk repeatedly as “Jew” and a “criminal.” (Yatseniuk has never identified himself as Jewish and says his religion is Greek-Catholic.)”

I think we’ll hear more of this.
