Skip to comments.Arizona Senator Jeff Flake's son Tanner busted for tweeting racist slurs (Blackmail?)

The offensive language used by Senator Jeff Flake's teenage son on the Internet has resulted in a public apology from both father and son.
Im very disappointed in my teenage sons words, and I sincerely apologize for the insensitivity. This language is unacceptable, anywhere. Needless to say, Ive already spoken with him about this, he has apologized, and I apologize as well, Senator Flake said in a statement to BuzzFeed .
Before Tanner Flake locked his Twitter account, his public tweets regularly contained offensive slurs, according to Buzzfeed.
On his Twitter account, Flake also posted screenshots of games revealing his username, "n1ggerkiller."
Flake's online lingo wasn't restricted to just Twitter, however.
In YouTube comments, Flake has repeatedly called other users "n*****" and "f****t" and referred to Mexicans as the "scum of the Earth."
On several occasions, Flake even bragged about his father's position in Congress.
All of Flake's comments can be found on Buzzfeed .
what sort of name is Von Tirpitz.
No, Flake doesn’t need to be blackmailed. He’s perfectly fine with being a RINO all by hizzelf.
I thought libs told us kids of pols were off limits.
And we couldn’t count on those seventy either if their votes were truly needed for the socialist agenda.
Doesn’t Flake have some connection with another “flake” who has gone to the beyond, Senator Goldwater.
Even if it was totally acceptable for a white person to say “nigger”, the username of “niggerkiller” would still be completely inappropriate.
#1 why would you want to?
#2 you have the right to say whatever you want. doesn’t mean you should
#3 why were Caucasians allowed to lynch blacks in the jim crow south, but blacks couldn’t lynch whites?
I don’t know.
But I do remember 1992. Goldwater endorsed both the Democrat and the Republican for a Congressional seat. The Rat won, and Goldwater was pleased.
Can someone freep mail me, as I’m assuming this shouldn’t be posted on an open forum, and tell me what this one is suppose to be because my stupid is showing and I can’t figure it out.
Over glorified rats IMO
British cigarette, I think.
Most politicians have relatives who do stupid things. Look at Jeb Bush. His wife tried to smuggle thousands of dollars of designer clothes into the country. Look at Bristol Palin. (Oops, better now do that. Lots of freepers will get upset.)
British food, actually. No, I’m not joking. You can find them in the frozen food section. It’s actually kind of tasty.
Oh, Duh!! I'm sure you're correct. Thanks you. I couldn't get my brain to engage this morning. :-)
And if you look at 4chan and anonymous and other such groups, that is a very commonly used term!
This news will certainly harm the prospects for the Gang of Ocho’s illegal alien bill.
So that’s a good thing.
Come on!!! No person in politics has a kid so stupid as to do something like this. My kids understand the political climate and what can be said and not said. You don’t think a congressperson’s son knows this? This was obviously a set up.
According to the liberals, it is only possible to be racist if you belong to a superior race.
I would assume Flake is horrified. I certainly would be if I found my child thought and behaved in such a nasty manner. If he doesn’t support the immigration bill, he wii be painted a racist like his vile son. The Senator has been compromised by his own son. I’m guessing purposefully.
