Erin Bilbray, a Democratic congressional candidate in Nevada, uses Facebook to connect with friends and supporters alike. She also uses it to express support for musicians (Amy Winehouse, Dave Matthews) and, well, other not-so-wholesome things.

Like this graphic, which the congressional candidate "liked" on Facebook:

Which features the offensive N-word and "Ching-Chong Ching" to refer, it would appear, to Asians.

And Bilbray used Facebook to express her "like" for the graphic:

"I have seen too many of my friends and neighbors lose their jobs, their homes, and their hope. At a time when Congress needs to be focusing on creating good paying jobs, it's mired in dysfunction.

She's running against Republican Joe Heck.
