Maine GOP attacks Democratic candidate for playing World of Warcraft

Published

on

The Republican Party of Maine is sending out mailers warning that Democratic state Senate candidate Colleen Lachowicz is a high-level Orc Assassin.

The mailers highlight Lachowicz’s online comments regarding her character in the massive online multiplayer game World of Warcraft, claiming she gets away with “crude, vicious and violent comments” in her online fantasy world. The Maine GOP also created a website, colleensworld.com, which showcases many of her comments about the popular role-playing game.

“So I’m a level 68 orc rogue girl. That means I stab things… a lot. Who would have thought that a peace-lovin’, social worker and democrat would enjoy that,” Lachowicz is quoted as saying in one of the GOP mailers. In another GOP mailer, Lachowicz says that she loves “poisoning and stabbing.”

Lachowicz, who is running against Republican state Sen. Thomas Martin, responded by mocking the mailers.

“I think it’s weird that I’m being targeted for playing online games,” she said in a statement. “Apparently I’m in good company since there are 183 million other Americans who also enjoy online games. What’s next? Will I be ostracized for playing Angry Birds or Words with Friends? If so, guilty as charged!”

World of Warcraft had approximately 9.1 million subscribers in June.

"As the impeachment inquiry against President Trump continues its march through Congress, questions are churning around his secretary of state, Mike Pompeo," wrote Simon. "For example, did he know, as witnesses testified before House investigators, that President Trump sought political favors from Ukraine in exchange for millions in U.S. assistance? Why did he take days to reveal he was on the now infamous July 25 call between Trump and Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskiy? And does he believe allies of the president who — despite the findings of the intelligence community — claim that Ukraine, not Russia, interfered in the 2016 election?"

Speaking with host David Gura, the LA Times Eli Stokols said international diplomats have realized there is no dealing with the president who is in his own world and just wants attention..

"Your colleague had a great line: 'This is a president who views norms like a teenager views curfews,'" Gura began.

"Well, he likes going to these things and blowing them up and being the center of attention," Stokols replied.
