"The Maine Republican Party is attacking a Democratic candidate for State Senate over her "time-consuming double life" as a player of World of Warcraft.
Colleen Lachowicz is running as a Democratic State Senate candidate in Waterville, Maine. David Sorensen, the communications director for the local GOP, said, "Today, Colleen is playing at level 85 -- the highest level one can attain. Studies have found that the average World of Warcraft gamer is 28 and spends 22.7 hours per week playing."
"Her character in the game is called 'Santiaga,' an Orc Assassin Rogue, and Lachowicz lives vicariously through her, making comments about World of Warcraft and other topics on the liberal blog, The Daily Kos," said Sorensen. The Maine GOP rounded up her comments on the site.
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?!"
"Yes, I am seriously slacking off at work today. And I called my congresswoman’s office today. And told them I would probably be calling everyday."
"I spent my day leveling my alt -- an undead warlock…"
"I’m lazy, remember?"
"Now if you’ll excuse me, I may have to go and hunt down Grover Norquist and drown him in my bath tub."
"Or my dream from election season last year where John McCain sat at my childhood dining room table and I reamed him a new a**hole about Sarah Palin."
Colleen Lachowicz responded to the release in a statement. “I think it's weird that I'm being targeted for playing online games. 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!" she said."
