(NEW YORK POST) – A candidate for a congressional seat in Virginia accused her opponent of campaigning with a white supremacist — and being an aficionado of Bigfoot porn.

Democrat Leslie Cockburn, the mother of actress Olivia Wilde, posted on Twitter Sunday screenshots from Republican Denver Riggleman’s Instagram account depicting a Bigfoot creature with a “censored” bar covering its genitals.

“My opponent Denver Riggleman, running mate of Corey Stewart, was caught on camera campaigning with a white supremacist,” she wrote on her account. “Now he has been exposed as a devotee of Bigfoot erotica. This is not what we need on Capitol Hill.”

She also posted another photo taken from his Instagram page showing another censored Sasquatch with Riggleman’s face pasted on it.

“My ‘buddies’ thought this pic was fitting for my birthday next week and to celebrate my new book release in a month or 2… ‘Mating Habits of Bigfoot and Why Women Want Him,’” the caption on Instagram said.

The account has since been set to private.

Riggleman, an Air Force veteran, said the images are a joke his military friends played on him.

The Cook Political Report, which analyzes elections across the country, said Riggleman recently deleted a Facebook author page in which he was promoting his self-published book, “The Mating Habits of Bigfoot and Why Women Want Him.”

Cockburn’s campaign manager referenced the Facebook page and the political report to take a shot at Riggleman.

“Leslie has been traveling throughout the district meeting with real people about real issues that matter to them,” Louise Bruce said in a statement to the Daily Progress, a newspaper in Charlottesville, Va. “Meanwhile, Mr. Riggleman is home scrubbing his social media of ‘Bigfoot erotica’ and who knows what else.”

The newspaper also reported that Riggleman co-authored a book titled “Bigfoot Exterminators Inc.: The Partially Cautionary, Mostly True Tale of Monster Hunt 2006.”

But a source said the book wasn’t about Bigfoot porn but people who look for evidence of the hulking creature.

Stewart, who’s running against incumbent Democrat Tim Kaine for a US Senate seat in Virginia, has come under fire from Democrats and some Republicans over his support for Confederate monuments and for his ties to a white supremacist who led last year’s protests in Charlottesville, where a young woman was killed.
