This week, the world may witness the first death due to Chael Sonnen overdose. It’s hard not to talk about a guy that calls himself ‘the fastest white republican‘ and is a frequent guest on Fox News. Last week, Chael Sonnen’s rep told us that all those snazzy remarks he made on his SonnenCH Twitter page were indeed fake. That same day we also found out that in an interview with Ariel Helwani at WEC: Aldo vs. Faber, Sonnen is on record plugging his alleged ‘fake’ Twitter account. Today, Fight! Magazine breaks the news that Chael Sonnen has decided to withdraw from his Oregon senate race due to ‘legal issues’.
“In the best interests of my district, I am resigning from my campaign for the Oregon House of Representatives. A 2006 legal issue has arisen that needs my immediate attention. I am not at liberty to disclose the details, but my name was involved in a real estate case that requires a ruling. If the ruling is adverse, I would be disqualified from running for office until 2011. So, given that possibility, I have chosen to withdraw my name as a candidate in 2010. I will continue to contribute to my community and ensure that we have a capable candidate to run for my district in November.”
There’s still a chance this may actually be fake Chael Sonnen withdrawing from the race but the real Chael Sonnen is still campaigning. The rumor is Chael Sonnen may have a ‘conflict of interest’ issue by being a Realtor in Oregon in 2006. Of course, his decision to drop out the race couldn’t be due to the rash of xenophobic remarks made by ‘fake’ Chael Sonnen. That’s just silly. [Source]
