Magazine Withdraws 'Inappropriate, Invasive' Op-Ed On Pete Buttigieg

2019-07-16 02:53:281 Oct 2018 01:53 AM EST

The New Republic officially retracted an opinion essay about 2020 Democratic presidential candidate Pete Buttigieg. Titled "My Mayor Pete Problem," the piece was withdrawn after immediate online backlash. In an Editor's Note, The New Republic said it regretted publishing the piece, which contained "inappropriate and invasive content." The League of Conservation Voters withdrew its participation from the magazine's upcoming presidential climate summit. According to Business Insider, The New Republic said the piece was "largely intended as satire." However, the piece's author, novelist Dale Peck, stood by the piece as his honest opinion.
