I didn’t understand what a Wild West situation we are in until I started working on this mayoral campaign for Beefcake. Let me be clear: I hate Beefcake’s guts and intend to bring him down. I’m just attempting to do that from the inside.
Still, I’m finding it interesting to learn a little bit more about governance and politics. In this new era following the SUCs, it turns out anyone can run for any office at any time. And the territory you are representing can be anything you say it is.
That’s it. Those are the rules.
