Haverford College graduate Zachary Werrell, who was the campaign manager in David Brat’s stunning upset of House Majority Leader Eric Cantor, was one of a thousand anonymous, young campaign staffers that dot the country. But when his candidate pulled off one of the biggest shockers in major U.S. election history, people started poking around. And now he’s scrubbed his Facebook page. Werrell’s political Facebook rants, which were removed overnight following Brat’s big win, basically read like any of the other thousand political rants that litter everyone’s Facebook feed. Only Werrell isn’t someone you went to kindergarden with who’s a property manager, he’s the campaign manager for a likely future congressman. Here’s an example:

I really hope the first comment on that was just “What?” He also ranted about abortion after the George Zimmerman acquittal — sure, why not? — and called for the end of prescription drug regulation. (Accutane for all!) His Facebook profile also listed his occupation as RINO [Republican in Name Only] Hunter since 1991 (the year of his birth). Additionally, he linked to an article on Lew Rockwell’s blog and agreed that there is a “war on boys.” Werrell’s blog is now in maintenance mode. [Yahoo! | Gawker]
