Christian Conservative ‘Vampire’ Running For Congress


*Meet Florida congressional candidate Jake Rush. By day, he’s an attorney, a former sheriff’s deputy and a self-described conservative straight-shooter. By night, he’s a vampire. Or at least he plays one in “Vampire: The Masquerade,” one of several Gothic-themed role-playing games Rush takes part both online and in person, under aliases such as “Chazz Darling,” “Staas van der Winst” and “Archbishop Kettering.” Rush’s official campaign video may position him as a white-bread Southern conservative seeking to unseat incumbent Rep. Ted Yoho in the Republican primary for North Florida’s 3rd District, but it doesn’t mention much about his long love affair with Gothic role-playing games.As originally unearthed by the Saint Petersblog, Rush has for years been a member of The Mind’s Eye Society, an online group dedicated to role-playing games not dissimilar from Dungeons and Dragons, but with a Gothic supernatural bent…* What about the questionable comments Rush has made? The Young Turks host Cenk Uygur breaks it down.

The Young Turks (Winner – Best Political Podcast & Best Political News Site of 2009) were the first original talk show on Sirius satellite radio and the first live, daily webcast on the internet. But that is not the revolution.

We are a rare show that combines all of the news that people care about in one place. We are not afraid to talk about politics and entertainment and sports and pop culture. But that is not the revolution either.

The real revolution is in daring to be honest with people. We don’t patronize our viewers or lie to them. We have real conversations and deliver the news honestly.
