Facebook riddle: How do I remove all of MY comments on the posts of a local politician?

So for the past couple of years I have regularly made comments on the Facebook posts of one of my local political representatives, a Tea Partier who often posts inaccurate and misleading statements as conversation starters. Being easily trolled as I am, I often try to set the record straight. I am always polite but also strong in my disagreements.* To the credit of this politician, FB comments that disagree with his policies are not deleted from her page.
Now, I find myself wanting to launch a public initiative that will require his support. And I think he might support the initiative, and I don't want those FB comments to get in the way. I am pretty certain that he does not manage his FB page himself, and I think if I removed all the comments and waited six months, no one would remember or connect the comments to me.
How, though, do I delete all my FB comments on his posts over two years? How do I even find them? Google brings me direction on how to delete a single comment, but I can't even find the comments I have made on his posts. I did try Fplorer.com and it did show me all my comments on his posts, but they were not clickable--I could not go to and delete them.
Serves me right I guess--but can I fix this?
*I had no choice but to make these comments. Someone was wrong on the internet.
