The Milwaukee Journal Sentinel elaborated:

The 19-year-old, who was running against Rep. Deb Kolste, D-Janesville, issued an apology last week after bloggers discovered a December post on Twitter about a ruling in support of same-sex marriage in Utah that included a derogatory term.

This week, bloggers surfaced comments on YouTube videos that included derogatory statements about black people. Dorsey also used a curse word in a YouTube comment referencing Abraham Lincoln, the nation's first Republican president. ...

Dorsey's name will remain on the Nov. 4 ballot. The Republican Party of Rock County denounced Dorsey's comments and asked him to return a donation to his campaign, according to the Gazette.

Dorsey told news outlets that he plans to return to Idaho to finish school.
