The internet looked up Ken Bone and found his dirt

"What steps will your energy policy take to meet our energy needs, while at the same time remaining environmentally friendly and minimizing job loss for fossil power plant workers?"

It's a question that shot undecided voter, Ken Bone, into his 15 minutes of internet fame, much like Joe the Plumber before him. America seemed to fall in love with this ordinary guy and was often referred to as "the real hero America needed."

The power plant worker sent Twitter into a tailspin, hosted his own Reddit AMA (Ask Me Anything), and millions have gotten their Ken Bone Halloween costumes ready for the holiday.

But the Reddit AMA he hosted was the beginning of the end for Ken Bone, the endearing character and the beginning of Ken Bone, the slightly creepy.

Here's the problem:

Bone used his existing Reddit account name, StanGibson18, to host the AMA. Once his screen name was out there, Redditors started digging up the dirt.

To be brief, Bone admitted to insurance fraud, looking at porn and had questionable comments on the Trayvon Martin and George Zimmerman case.

A sampling of the comments are posted on page 2 of this article. We wanted you to have the choice to see them.

Some are graphic and you might find the subject matter offensive.
