Naked photos surface of Coalition candidate
The Canadian PressThursday, March 13, 2014
MONTREAL - A candidate for the Coalition party in Quebec's election campaign is getting a lot of exposure.
And that's the naked truth.
A photo of candidate Steven Fleurent has surfaced showing him sitting on a toilet in his birthday suit except for bracelets on his wrists and underwear around his ankles.
The long-haired hopeful for Rimouski riding is seen flashing a toothy smile and giving a big thumbs-up.
It is not clear when the photo of the 21-year-old was taken.
Coalition Leader Francois Legault has reacted philosophically to the controversy, putting it down to an ''error of youth" and saying Fleurent will remain a candidate in the riding northeast of Quebec City.
"He admitted that he made an error at that time but for us, we've turned the page," Legault said Thursday.
Attempts to link to Fleurent's Facebook page produce a blank screen.
