A U.S. Senate candidate who previously made headlines for admitting to drinking goat’s blood says he was prohibited from entering Canada.
Augustus Invictus, a Libertarian candidate hoping to fill the Senate seat vacated by Republican presidential hopeful Marco Rubio, said he was blocked from attending a Vancouver speaking engagement because of his affiliation with neo-Nazis, according to FloridaPolitics.com.
“Canadian Border Service then spent 3.5 hours investigating me,” Invictus complained in a press release. “I was interrogated about my affiliation with neo-Nazis, about the charges of Fascism, and about allegations of racism.”
Invictus, a 32-year-old lawyer, represented the former head of the neo-Nazi group American Front in 2014. His client, Marcus Faella, had been sentenced to six months in jail on domestic terrorism charges.
Invictus claimed that “communists” had threatened the event he planned to speak at. Canadian officials said allowing him into the country could cause violence.
Last year, Invictus admitted to sacrificing a goat “to the god of the wilderness” and drinking its blood. The news broke after the chairman of the Libertarian Party of Florida resigned to call attention to his bizarre candidacy.
