Ed Martin Video Game: Gobbles Emails, Wastes Tax Dollars
Russ Carnahan'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.
