Proving once again that Florida is the home to all things weird, Jake Rush, a conservative Christian Republican candidate for Congress, has been exposed as a role-playing gamer neck deep into his role as a member of the Mind's Eye Society - a group of goth-punks who dress up as vampires and werewolves for adult play.
The Republican lawyer and former cop wants to topple tea party Congressman Ted Yoho. Rush's first web ad shows him swearing on the Bible, wearing his old Alachua County Sheriff's Office uniform and teaching kids about the U.S. Constitution.
The images of him wearing black contact lenses while dressed in Dracula-like leather outfits? Not so much.
Rush's campaign responded hours later by saying he's an actor and he's being attacked unfairly by Yoho et al.
"As a straight shooter, yes, I play and have played video games, role playing games, board games, Yahtzee, Clue, and I have acted in dozens of theatre productions," Rush said in a statement
Rush is a member of a local group best known for their fondness for acting out occult rituals and BDSM rape-fantasies. Because, you know, Yahtzee! In a posting to an online bulletin board, Rush wrote:
At first I thought you were just stupid and I wanted to stick my dick in your mouth to shut you up while I snorted a line off my new machete that was blessed by Rui (sic) but then I remembered that you were typing so my dick would really have to be in your hands to keep you from typing but since you are walking in Omaha that's not really realistic right now.
Rae tells me that you are a Maiden, and it's your job to be kind of stupid and that I'm not supposed to have intercourse with Maidens.
You shouldn't believe everything that people tell you or you're going to end up naked and sore, tied to the floor of a van marked "Free Candy."
Since conservative Christians seem solely concerned with Leviticus and it's rules and condemnations, maybe he should brush up on Leviticus 20:27. Someone break out the stones!
