GOP outs opponent's orc alter ego for lack of anything real to discuss10/5/2012
Maine Republicans have spent the week attacking Democrat Senate hopeful Colleen Lachowicz not because of what she's done but because of what she pretends to do. The GOP in Maine has launched an entire website dedicated to outing Santiaga, her orc rogue alter ego (a level 85 orc, even … and, no, we don't know what that means) in the online game "World of Warcraft." According to them, Lachowicz's "bizarre double life" makes her unfit for office, and they're sending out fliers to the entire district to point that out. "I think it's weird that I'm being targeted for playing online games," Lachowicz said. "What's really weird is that [they] are going after my hobbies instead of talking about their record." [Source]
