TORONTO, CANADA - If you thought politics in America was nasty business, wait until you see what Jerry Bance has been up to.
Bance is a Canadian conservative candidate for Parliament, running in Scarborough. When he's not running for office, he owns and operates an appliance repair business.
Today, he's probably focusing on some reputation repairs of his own. Bance happened to appear in a 2012 CBC episode of Marketplace, a show that did undercover investigations of home service companies.
In that episode, there's a service technician who waits for a homeowner to leave the room, before peeing in a coffee cup that he takes from the sink. Then the technician pours the cup out in the sink and continues his work.
The reason all this is a big deal? Jerry Bance is said technician! Yes, all this happened way before Bance was running for office, but not long enough, apparently. His political party said, more or less, 'urine trouble.' Bance is no longer a candidate. Unfortunately for him, his disgusting antics won't be flushed away with his campaign.
The "Peegate" hashtag has already made its way across the Internet. Donald Trump should watch his back, because this politician really knows how to make a splash.
