Drudge Retort: The Other Side of the News
Saturday, February 01, 2014

A 64-year-old Republican congressional candidate is putting himself and his money into not one, but four races at the same time. Allan Levene is running for the House of Representatives in his home state of Georgia -- as well as Michigan, Minnesota and Hawaii. Legally, he doesn't have to pick one race unless and until he wins a primary. "I have such a debt to this country, a debt of gratitude to the United States for taking me in and letting me become a citizen about 40 years ago that I have to repay it," he said.

Thats because its just a paid job to him that all. No different than a burger flipper putting applications in at multiple fast food joints.

Should he be successful in any of these states, he will sell himself and his office to the international corporations as an agent for their capital interests.

He will collect much more than the pay and benefits granted to a House Representative.

He can serve a term or two, then convert any unspent campaign contributions to personal income and walk away with a big sack of lucre.

Today, "repay" to a politician means committing extortion in order to enrich family, friends and himself, within a system of laws of their own creation.

He's just playing the odds.

If he wins all 4 seats does he get 4 votes and 4 salaries?

I'm so dumb for not having become a politician. Easiest job in America.

I remember reading about some woman from Arkansas who ran in New York.

Do you mean that this Republican has earned your approval? The one who is deliberately attempting to represent States which he isn't even a citizen of? I'm confused?

Why would anyone willingly join the Republican mechanism? To subvert it? To re-enforce it's "core values"? Surely self-professed minority candidate might appreciate the complexity of this relationship as being viewed with some surprise, if not outright skepticism.

He's like the soft-power version of Ted Cruz, imo.
