Burum  also cited numerous publications on Antonio Sabato Jr.s controversial past, repeating his quote from a Dec. 5th interview in which he said,

As a life-long member of the Republican Party, it is my obligation to request Antonio Sabato Jr. suspend his campaign.  His participation as a porn-star along with admitted drug addictions is and will continue to be an embarrassment to the Republican Party.  The Hollywood and DC culture is clearly inconsistent with American family values. We cannot afford to allow a newly self-designated Republican to hurt the party.
