Maine Republicans have created a webpage revealing that Democrat candidate Colleen Lachowicz plays an orc rogue in World of Warcraft (WoW).
Ms Lachowicz’s liking for back-stabbing and poison in WoW raise questions about her “fitness for office”, they claim.
Ms Lachowicz has hit back saying the attack showed the Republicans were “out of touch”.
I WOW is one of the most popular games out there today. There are lots of hobbies that politicians brag about, the biggest is hunting. They want to align themselves with the everyman. How much more mainstream do you get than playing WOW? Also this is obviously not a political stunt like John Kerry’s ill-fated goose hunt . Kerry dressed in some shiny-new hunting dudes and went out for a walk in a swamp, and made sure cameras were rolling. An Orc Rogue is hardly the class some political schemer would come up with.
