Maine Senate Candidate is Avid WoW Player

And apparently it's getting her flak from the GOP:

Colleen Lachowicz is running as a Democratic State Senate candidate in Waterville, Maine. David Sorensen, the communications director for the local GOP, said, "Today, Colleen is playing at level 85 — the highest level one can attain. Studies have found that the average World of Warcraft gamer is 28 and spends 22.7 hours per week playing."

"Her character in the game is called 'Santiaga,' an Orc Assassin Rogue, and Lachowicz lives vicariously through her, making [off-color] comments about World of Warcraft and other topics on the liberal blog, The Daily Kos," said Sorensen.


"Instead of talking about what they're doing for Maine people, they're making fun of me for playing video games. Did you know that more people over the age of 50 play video games than under the age of 18? As a gamer, I'm in good company with folks like Jodie Foster, Vin Diesel, Mike Myers, and Robin Williams. Maybe it's the Republican Party that is out of touch."
