Thank you for your service to the region Scott. I don't think the legislature would have been able to achieve much of anything without your steady hand at the tiller. I hope you come back at some point if you're able to.

Voting shall begin immediately for the offices of Emperor of the Imperial Dominion of the South and for two seats in the Imperial Legislature. Voting will end on Monday, December 23rd after 72 hours have elapsed.

A voter's ballot is valid only if the voter:

(1) is registered with the Atlasian Registrar General as a voter of a Southern state during the entire time that the poll is open;
(2) makes only a single post in that election thread;
(3) does not edit or delete the post more than one hour after the post has been made; and
(4) clearly identifies the contest in which a vote is intended to be applied, except when there is only one contest on the ballot.

Official Ballot:

IDS Emperor:
[ ] PiT (Fed-LA)
[ ] Mechaman (D-R-AR)
[ ] Write-in:

Imperial Legislature:
[ ] Small L (D-R-TX) (i)
[ ] Sjoyce (Ind-FL)

I would normally vote WJB because his story is great and I think that McKinley is highly overrated but on this forum, with Debs having a real possibility of winning, I've gotta go with the lesser of two evils.

McKinley.
260  Forum Community / Forum Community / Re: Interning For Congressmen? on: December 18, 2013, 02:41:28 am
I worked in my Congressman's DC office over the summer; most of what we did has already been described (phones, errands, occasional hearings). Its hard to say there is any one thing that you'd do, there's a lot of diversity between different offices. Some have only one or two interns who mostly sit around and read Roll Call and some have 5 or 6 who actually help with policy matters; I remember one had 9 and was trying to basically use interns as replacements for staff members but that was seen as beyond the pale. One thing I had to do a lot at my office was give tours. Several times a day a curious constituent would waltz into the office with no idea what they were doing and would want a tour of the capitol building and because staffers don't have free time we would do it.

As for everyone saying you need to know someone, I wouldn't believe it. If most offices are anything like the one I worked for the only input the congressman has in the choice of interns is a final cursory nod. The chief of staff and maybe the scheduler are the ones who will receive your request and evaluate whether or not to let you in. Your best bet for getting in is submitting your request to their office as soon as possible and being as flexible as possible for when you'd be able to work, some parts of the year only get one or two intern requests and others get 20. Also, if you get the chance to choose between a congressional office or a campaign pick the office; its much more rewarding an experience and its much easier.

Oh, and for those saying working for a Republican would be no good: Southern Republicans have the most friendly and laid-back offices of all, with the sole exception of Hanabusa but she's from Hawaii and that's just not fair.

Crist leads 49-45...in Scotts internals.

What moron thought it was a good idea to release that?

The kind who believes that the campaign will be worse for Crist than Scott. Scott has a decent record to run on and Crist somehow has more skeletons in the closet than he does. Combine that with a cash advantage and you have an acceptable excuse to releasing a poll showing your candidate down but still in the race.

I must say a 60-voters turnout for a foreign election series is starting to look suspicious...

How so? German elections would probably be the most popular to vote on anyways.

South Africa is a failed state run by incompetent fools who should let 'competent'/'civilized' people run the country amirite??!!!

You support the ANC?

No, of course not, but I hope you realize that thinking SA is not a 'failed state' and basket case =/= supporting the ANC. Although admittedly, the white specialists brigade and their disgusting comments on SA make it tempting to back the ANC.

And the idea that Mbeki was in any way a good president is laughable. Get a clue people.

You dislike the ANC (Zuma era, Mbeki era and you have reservations about the Mandela era) IFP, COPE, apartheid leaders, pre-apartheid leaders, and the DA. For someone who is so interested in South African politics, you sure don't seem to like any of them!

Rick Scott's chief of staff, Adam Hollingsworth, lied on his job application. He correctly stated that he had attended the University of Alabama from 86-90 and had a BA in communications. What he "forgot" to mention is that he didn't actually get the degree until 2009 when he went back and finished it. This is probably enough to get him kicked out, which is bad luck for Scott. I don't know if we should read too much into this; I try to stay up with Florida news and didn't hear about this for a few days, but it is bad luck for Scott who may be about to lose his 3rd chief of staff.
