Here’s a scary thought for the 2014 election season: Bob Eick as your state treasurer. Well, not exactly, according to the Republican candidate and slasher-film producer including the horror classic Blair Witch Project. He says he’s not the real scary politician, but the real person to fear is Democratic State Treasurer Denise Nappier. Let’s say they’re both scary and call it a draw.
This television commercial is a rather unconventional way to introduce yourself to voters, but hey Eick is a funder of films so he should know all there is to funding state employee pensions and protecting the people’s money, right? He’s also a millionaire self -funding his campaign just like Linda McMahon twice did for U.S. Senate. Hmmm, film violence from self-funders. Sense a pattern here?
