The profile included a list of his “loves”, “likes”, “tolerates” and “hates”. Some of his apparent entries were sexual in nature, with his profile indicating that “rape” is something he tolerates.
In an interview with the Danbury News Times Thursday, Chamberlain explained his involvement in the “furry” community as a harmless hobby. “It’s nothing to do with sex; it’s an interest in cartoon animals," he said, citing examples such as Kelloggs’ Tony the Tiger and Disney’s Mickey Mouse.
Chamberlain, whose avatar on the site is a foxlike character named “Gray Muzzle”, also said that he writes a “a soap opera” read by hundreds of sofurry.com users that includes some sexual situations.
He published his resignation on his Facebook page Saturday, but it appears to have since been deleted.
Speaking to the New York Post, New Milford Mayor David Gronbach said he took a dim view of the profile and called for Chamberlain’s resignation.
“In response to information about ‘likes’ on a personal page by Councilman Chamberlain, I have called for his immediate resignation from the Town Council and any other appointed Boards and Commissions,” Gronbach said.
“As public servants, we are held to a higher standard and Mr. Chamberlain’s apparent posts do not meet that standard.”
Peter Mullen, the town’s Democratic chairman, said Chamberlain had told him that his interest was in “science fiction adult literature.”
“Literature is one thing, but this kind of stuff takes on a whole different level,” Mullen told the Danbury News Times.
CAMP LEJEUNE, N.C. — A decorated Marine colonel based at Camp Lejeune was convicted in a court-martial Sunday of sexually abusing a child.
The child abuse charge stems from his fondling of a girl younger than 12 on various occasions between June 26, 2016, and July 13, 2016, while he was on active duty at Camp Lejeune. The military jury acquitted him of several other child sex charges.
The conduct unbecoming charges stemmed from incidents in February and March 2016, when Wilson was in Australia and Okinawa, involving lewd comments he made and inappropriate emails he sent.
Wilson also was found guilty of going AWOL for eight days around New Year's Day 2017.
Wilson served in the Marine Corps for more than 30 years and completed 11 deployments.
