Politician banned from meetings until he stops wearing wrestling mask3/14/2013
Japan's Oita City Council knew what it was getting when Skull Reaper A-ji was voted into office: a grown man who wears a "lucha libre"-style wrestling mask at all times. But the less-awesome politicians who attend the meetings have banned him until he removes his mask. Mr. Skull Reaper knows that you DO NOT unmask a superhero — especially not to talk about public policy — so he has refused. "If I take my mask off, I'm an entirely different person," he said. "I will not take it off." He says his mask makes average citizens more comfortable when they talk to him and that it hasn't prevented him from doing charity work, mainly visiting people with physical disabilities. [Source]
