The debate on Thursday was between two of the candidates for the Democratic nomination for California’s 1st Congressional District, hosted by the group Independent Like the North State. Green Party candidate Lewis Elbinger and Democrat David Peterson were both in the debate that was being livestreamed on the local radio station as it was accidentally interrupted with gay porn scenes. Debate moderator Chris Verrill quickly stopped the broadcast, stating: “Looks like we got hacked, we’ll try to fix this.” But the broadcast was not resumed. This was the first debate and stream that Independent Like the North State had organized. Verrill wrote on Facebook after the broadcast that it was disappointing and disrespectful but they are already thinking about rescheduling the debates. “We had a community forum, and while it’s disappointing people did not respect us, or the candidates, or more importantly the democratic process, or the community, that’s part of the way democracy works,” he added. Both Elbinger and Peterson are candidates to win the Democratic nomination for the state Congress seat currently held by Republican Doug LaMalfa.
