It’s of little surprise if we hear of someone getting the short end of the stick in some situation just because they’re a gamer, but this is a new one. Colleen Lachowicz, a Senate hopeful from Maine, is being assaulted by her opposition for being a big fan of World of Warcraft. Now, we’ll forgive you if you’ve never heard of the game (we can only faintly recall it), but in it, Colleen is a level 85 Orc Assassin named Santiaga. This, according to her opposition, makes her unfit for a State Senate placement.
Thanks to her love of the game, Colleen apparently leads a “double-life”, and because she wants to go drown her ‘Grover Norquist’ in a bathtub, it makes her truly unfit to be in politics. Colleen’s opposition feels so strongly about this, that they’ve even gone ahead and dedicated a website to it. Who exactly they’re trying to target, we’re not sure.
“We think anyone making comments about drowning Grover Norquist and stabbing things shows a shocking level of immaturity and poor judgment that voters should know about,” Maine GOP party spokesman David Sorenson said.
I think someone just needs rebuffed.
