Democratic Senate Candidate Colleen Lachowicz's Disturbing Alter-Ego Revealed

Online comments raise questions about candidate's fitness for office

AUGUSTA - Colleen Lachowicz, the Democratic candidate for State Senate District 25 (Waterville), has been living a time-consuming double life as a member of the World of Warcraft community. World of Warcraft is an online gaming network where people play a fantasy role-playing game in an imaginary world called "Azeroth."

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 comments about World of Warcraft and other topics on the liberal blog, The Daily Kos. Here is a sampling of Lachowicz's comments:

"So I'm a level 68 orc rogue girl. That means I stab things . . . a lot. Who would have thought that a peace-lovin', social worker and democrat would enjoy that?!"
"Yes, I am seriously slacking off at work today. And I called my congresswoman's office today. And told them I would probably be calling everyday."
"I spent my day leveling my alt -- an undead warlock..."
"I'm lazy, remember?"
"Now if you'll excuse me, I may have to go and hunt down Grover Norquist and drown him in my bath tub."
"Or my dream from election season last year where John McCain sat at my childhood dining room table and I reamed him a new a**hole about Sarah Palin."
"I like to stab things and I'm originally from NJ.... what's your f***ing point?!"
"Do not send me a campaign contribution or I will have to stab you! Seriously!"
"Yes, join us! We're progressive... in fact we joke about being a socialist guild."
"I love this diary because it sums up the teabagger mindset."

"These are some very bizarre and offensive comments, and they certainly raise questions about Lachowicz's maturity and her ability to make serious decisions for the people of Senate District 25," said Maine Republican Party spokesman David Sorensen.

The Maine Republican Party will make an effort to give voters all of the information about candidate Lachowicz. To that end, the party has established a website, www.colleensworld.com, where people can see Lachowicz's online activity for themselves. In addition, a series of mail pieces will be sent to the voters of District 25, including the one below.

Voters should have all the information they can obtain about those who choose to run for office. The Maine Republican Party will present that information to them and let them decide who is most able to represent them effectively.

Are they sure this moonbat doesn't actually work at the DEP?

And we pay this moonbat with our tax dollars to do this.

I wouldn't want this woman anywhere near my child. I do not want her anywhere near the Maine Senate.

As for the comments about "slacking off at work," and playing video games during the work day, it sounds like she needs a job evaluation, STAT.

About Colleen Lachowicz:

"I’ve worked for Kennebec Behavioral Health since 1997 and have been the
Program Director of School-Based Services since 2005. We provide
counseling and consultation to schools in Kennebec and Somerset counties
from HeadStart through high school. I provide direct services myself in
Waterville and Winslow high schools. As part of my job I develop and
manage a program budget. I supervise the staff. I work with local
schools to develop service provider agreements. And I also develop and
work on grants to pay for some of the services we provide. It is a
source of pride that by careful use of resources we find ways to provide
services for children who have no health insurance or whose insurance
is inadequate."

------------------

From her gaming blog:

"Yes, I am seriously slacking off at work today. And I called my
congresswoman's office today. And told them I would probably be calling
everyday."
"I spent my day leveling my alt -- an undead warlock..."
"I'm lazy, remember?"

----------------------

---> Note to the Kennebec Behavioral Health Services management -- you need to check her computer and her phone, and find out if she's being paid to play online games.

I don't think this lady should be near anyones children, I sure to god hope she doesn't have any of her own!

This is a prefect person to represent the liberal ideology! She doesn't stand out in that crowd of weird and bizzare ideas at all!

How do they come up with a candidate like this one?

And the Dems thought Fred Wintle did all the bizzare stuff!

Note to Ms. Lachowicz -- if you want privacy, you're at liberty to cease running for public office. Very simple.

Colleen, I don't think you

Colleen, I don't think you have a clue about why others are disturbed by all of this, Neither they, nor I, could care less what kinds of games you play.......on your own time, though I expect your employer might be a bit uptight to know you are playing those games while you are being paid to work!

But when you start talking, in a public place like a blog, about stabbing, drowning and killing well known people, whose ideas you obviously take issue with, then sweetie, you are the one with serious problems. I am not sure if "counseling" would do you any good or not. Frankly, it scares the daylights out of me to know that your work involves counseling children. God help us......and them!

Just from what you wrote, I would have guessed that you are a liberal, as many of your ilk talk often about hoping for the deaths, in any one of many suggested ways, of those whose political ideas they don't agree with.

You are a perfect match for your poltical ideology!

Myself, I want a Maine Senator who doesn't have violent slasher fantasies, who knows better than to talk about drowning other people, and who possesses basic spelling abilities.

You know, just the little things.

We need to be accurate.

We need to be accurate. Let's think, people. Some of what's on her game profile, and in her other emails, etc. is not really objectionable. Some of it is. We need to focus on what's truly bad.
What adds to the objectionable level is her response to this: rather than face up to it, own what needs to be owned, apologize for what needs an apology, etc. she instead tries to change the subject and play the victim.
That part is at least as objectionable as anything else about this. And it's really outrageous. "How DARE we question our rulers!"

Your comment will likely be drowned, slashed, mutilated, and then buried in carbonite. Orcs can be terribly severe when provoked.

She's deleting any comments on the blog that question her, or that are negative. Another indication she's in no way ready to be a legislator.

GOP staffer David Sorensen's piece makes Politico

“We think anyone making comments about drowning Grover Norquist and stabbing things shows a shocking level of immaturity and poor judgment that voters should know about,” ... Sorenson said. “Certainly the fact that she spends so much time on a video game says something about her work ethic and, again, her immaturity.”
...snip

Sorenson had no apologies.

“It’s pretty outrageous, it really is,” he said. “It’s something you don’t see every cycle.”

Bingo, Jim Cyr! With the bonus gift of one carton of cyber-smokes.

Look ... why is anyone giving this 'gamer' such a hard time? All she wants to do is vaporize all the infidels!

This has been a recurring theme through history. As Yogi would say, it's deja vu all over again.

Continuing on her penchant for individualism, maybe she'll show up next as Lady Gag Gag, be carried out by slaves borne on an elevated platform, hidden inside a faux capsule of moon-bat guano.

Stand by for heavy rolls, and consequent record demand for air sick bags.

I'm shocked--shocked, I tell you--to report that she has allowed many positive comments, and my comment has been left on the cutting room (no pun intended) floor.

But I thought that Democrats stood for free speech, and "dissent was patriotic"? Champion of the downtrodden gamers that she is, I would think she'd proudly post everything that she got.

Leftists--they're so predictable.

Oh, yes - just another indication that she's "Not Ready for Prime Time." If she cannot handle dissent on a blog, what would she possibly do of benefit in Augusta?

I guess she's only "fierce" in Make Believe Land.

Who would have thought that an egalitarian nihilist progressive who constantly pushes for coercive government social controls would not enjoy it?

The story has made The

The story has made The Blaze.

Here's my post to her--it'll be seen far more here on AMG than if it made her blog, anyhow:

"The issue is not gaming. The issue is expressing fantasies about physically harming people perceived as political enemies, and the self-admitted gaming when you should be working. Not to mention expressing such hostility while being in close proximity to children.

And now you want people to vote you into a political office, where you are allegedly going to spend your time representing them? Will you be buffing up your “undead warlock” in committee meetings or while you’re voting on critical issues in the legislature? Will you be fantasizing about whacking your Republican constituents while “representing” them?

I’m a gamer. Like most gamers, we can separate our gaming from real life. But there is the occasional person who lets the gaming take over how they perceive the real world. You show some signs of doing that very thing. You might consider talking to someone who is a professional counselor about this–and not running for political office until you get reality and fantasy sorted out."

For liberals, progressives,

For liberals, progressives, collectivists, whatever, REALITY is always the number one enemy, the crusher of dreams, the denier of utopia, the antithesis of fairness.

They believe reality can be locked away in a prison somewhere if they just keep spending and programming and legislating.

But like the face they see in the mirror in the morning, the ugly truth keeps staring right back at them no matter how hard they work to make it go away. No amount of political botox, lipstick, lifts, 'work,' snips, wigs, or other man-made contrivances can alter what lies beneath the veneer, the vanity, and the self-deception.

"It is hardly too strong to say that the Constitution was made to guard the people against the dangers of good intentions. There are men in all ages who mean to govern well, but they mean to govern. They promise to be good masters, but they mean to be masters " - Daniel Webster

I just talked with a friend of mine who plays WOW; he looked at her profile, and says she has only been on twice this year. This is the 'official' WOW server, however, and there are 'unofficial' (as in, free and not authorized by Blizzard) servers she can be playing on.

Viking, thank you. Lachowicz

Viking, thank you.

Lachowicz is still blocking any negative comments on her blog.

Bottom line, her statements indicate a complete lack of decorum, discretion, and maturity. She is not legislative material.
