When Politics Meets Fantasy

Meet Colleen Lachowitz. She's a candidate for state senate in Maine.

She's also a World of Warcraft player:
In an unusual press release issued Thursday, the Maine GOP attacked Lachowicz for a “bizarre double life” in which she’s a devotee of the hugely popular online role-playing game World of Warcraft. In the game, she’s “Santiaga,” an "orc assassination rogue" with green skin, fangs, a Mohawk and pointy ears.

Other postings use curse words and make to the joy of “stab[bing] things,” joke about “being in a Socialist guild” and admit to “seriously slacking off at work.”
We live in a pretty strange world right now. Imagine about 20 years from now when a Brony runs for president...
