's congressional campaign today debuted an online video game featuring Republican challenger Ed Martin
. Dubbed "Ed Martin is Hackman"
the game is a riff on the '80s mainstay Pacman.
Carnahan communication's director Angela Guyadeen
says of the game: "The website uses a funny theme to highlight
the seriousness of Ed Martin's personal bailout, costing taxpayers $2.4 million
dollars for destroying government emails, firing a whistleblower and then trying
to cover it up as Governor Matt Blunt's chief of staff."
Last week Daily RFT
touched on some of the same themes in a post highlighting the irony of Martin's recent FOIA request
for emails from Carnahan's office and suggesting that the congressman has destroyed such documents.
As for the the video game? It's fun. But, like real life, no matter how many times you think Ed is dead, he keeps coming back with three new credits and a brand new life.
