OAKLAND (CBS SF) — One of the 15 candidates in the Oakland mayor’s race, who gained some notoriety after he was featured in a TV segment by talk show host Jimmy Kimmel, managed to glean a few hundred votes despite his views which include the Internet being a tool for masturbation and using horses as a form of alternative urban transportation.

33-year-old Peter Liu was among the bottom eight candidates in a field of 15 who asserted before the election that they were being denied media coverage afforded to better-known candidates.

Liu garnered 246 votes, landing in the middle of the pack of the bottom eight candidates. The top vote-getter, Libby Schaaf, recieved more than 16,000 votes.

Liu claims to be a self-made millionaire and told the San Francisco Chronicle before the election he was motivated to run by a relative who “called me a piece of sh-t” and because God asked him to. On his profile page on the oaklandmayor2014.com website, he uses the word “f-ck” ten times in his written statement.

Liu says he supports allowing all citizens and business owners to have permits to carry concealed weapons as a deterrent to crime. His picture on the Oakland mayoral candidate website shows him wielding a gun.

On the Oakland mayoral candidates web page Liu offered this response when asked about increasing access to Internet and technology to lesser-served areas of Oakland:

“Not sure if the “digital divide” is such a bad thing, I don’t think kids are suffering because of it, but I’ll bridge the gap in Oakland with condoms. You see, what it means is 95% of the kids up in the Oakland hills be clicking on porno sites at an earlier age versus 50% of flatland kids be hooking it up with the real thang so they need contraceptives …”

“The lesson here is this: when your son says “Mommy, Daddy, I need internet access for homework.” This really translates to: “I am gonna masturbate online while my parents at work yo.”

Liu also proposed riding horses as an alternative form of transportation.

“I am an animal lover and those ponies are cute. With my trusty horse sidekick, HORSEY, I’ll ride like a western cowboy slinging revolvers and my horse s*** all over Oakland grass patches as natural fertilizer for the trees and flowers. I am an environmentalist too. “
