Democratic state senate candidate Colleen Lachowicz is being attacked by the Republican Party of Maine because she plays World of Warcraft, which has 9 million players.
The GOP mailers claim that Lachowicz makes “crude, vicious and violent comments” in the World of Warcraft, reports rawStory.com.
The Republican Party of Maine also created a website, ColleensWorld.com, which has quotes of Lachowicz from the World of Warcraft: “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 responded by saying: “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!”
