Senate Candidate Slammed for 'Bizarre Double Life' as Orc Assassination Rogue in World of Warcraft

Yes, this is a thing:

Maine State Senate candidate Colleen Lachowicz may seem like a sweet social worker, but in her spare time, she’s a stab-happy green-skinned monster named Santiaga.

The fact that Santiaga only exists in the online roleplaying game World of Warcraft is of little consequence to the Maine Republican Party, who are attacking Lachowicz for her level-85 orc assassination rogue character, as well as inflammatory remarks she’s made on online message boards. The site ColleensWorld.com — which has to be one of the first of its kind — takes the candidate to task for living in an “online fantasy world.”

Apparently, nothing you do online is safe. NOTHING. God help me if the GOP finds out about the Sim I made of Mitt Romney. Next, we’ll find out a Maine Democrat listens to that demonic rock and/or roll music.

The GOP is largely living in a fantasy world these days, so I suppose we shouldn’t be surprised. The site itself is juvenile, with Lachowicz’s face morphing into that of her character on a GIF loop. Her statement on this matter is great:

What’s really weird is that the Republicans are going after my hobbies instead of talking about their record while they’ve been running Augusta for the last two years. Instead of talking about what they’re doing for Maine people, they’re making fun of me for playing video games. Did you know that more people over the age of 50 play video games than under the age of 18? As a gamer, I’m in good company with folks Jodie Foster, Vin Diesel, Mike Myers, and Robin Williams. Maybe it’s the Republican Party that is out of touch.

I can get behind that.
