Help microfinance a Kansas campaign for $8.34!

“Running for Office: It’s Like A Flamewar with a Forum Troll, but with an Eventual Winner
Share this with others”


Sean Tevis is running an XKCD-styled campaign to unseat his anti-evolution, pro-censorship, pro-surveillance, anti-gay incumbent representative deserves support. And he lives within miles of where I was in Kansas! Amazing. He deserves your support. He’s trying to get 3000 people to give him $8.34. Let’s help him out!

Here’s a note I sent to my Kansan relatives:

“[Dear relatives whom I normally do not speak with on a frequent basis,]

What’s $8.34 worth to you?

Sean Tevis is a geeky geek from Olathe, Kansas who’s fed up with his state rep, an anti-abortion, anti-evolution, pro-censorship, pro-surveillance, anti-gay incumbent. Tevis — a total unknown — is polling within three points of his opponent, and is looking to raise some Internet dough to kick this guy’s butt.

To promote his cause, he’s made a fantastic, XKCD-style cartoon (note: “XKCD” is a much-loved geek comic) called “It’s Like A Flamewar with a Forum Troll, but with an Eventual Winner.” Specifically, he’s looking to raise $8.34 from 3,000 people (no state rep in Kansas history has ever had more than 644 donors). I’m in; I actually gave him $16.68.

This guy sounds just like me except he’s running on the tech issues that I care about. And he’s got a great comic up. What more do you need? 😉

His web site:

He’s taking donations through PayPal, a safe and secure online payment system. Please think about it and if it’s not too hard, can you spare $8.34?
