A Fake ‘Honest Politician’ to Spur Focus on Corrupt Campaign Funding

Just found this notice from Represent.Us in my mail. A wildly creative approach to politics. Can barely wait to see what happens!

Run this Honest Politician for U.S. Senate

Meet Gil Fulbright: America’s first ‘honest’ politician. He’s a hysterical candidate who’s going to Kentucky to shake up Mitch MConnell’s and Alison Lundergan Grimes’ U.S. Senate race.

We made this short video to explain how it’s all going to work, or you can read about it at our IndieGoGo campaign page.

‘Honest Gil’ will bring much-needed exposure to the race’s record-shattering $100 million price tag, and get America (and both candidates) talking about how to fix our corrupt political system.

Gil is fake, but his campaign isn’t. Control of the Senate could hinge on this one race, so the national news media will be watching…. This is our chance to break with convention, be bold, and make the 2014 election all about the money. I hope you’ll help.

Please, take one minute to jumpstart this campaign: Like Gil on Facebook and follow him on Twitter and Instagram.
