Outed: Republican Candidate is Part of a Vampire Cult by Night

Jacob Rush, a Republican lawyer from Gainesville, Florida, is running for Congress by day and is part of a vampire cult by night.

Rush, who prides himself a devout Christian and also works as a Sheriff’s deputy, is running for Congress on an anti-Obamacare and debt reduction platform. By night, however, Rush turns into a “Gothic vampire named Lord Staas van der Winst.” Or, sometimes, he prefers to be “Lord Chazz Darling.”

According to media reports, Rush is part of the Mind’s Eye Society, a national organization for live-action role play where people can become vampires, werewolves, and anything in between and “join together in the struggle against their own bestial natures, hunters, and each other.”

According to SaintPetersBlog, Rush “is not some teenager playing Dungeons and Dragons in his mom’s basement. This is a game for adults, with adult themes.”

The site uncovered a photo that Rush tried to delete from the internet of him as “Chazz Darling” with the caption “Put on my Rape Face.”

The message along with the photo reads “At first I thought you were just stupid and I wanted to stick my d*** in your mouth to shut you up while I snorted a line off my new machete that was blessed by Rui but then I remembered that you were typing so my d*** would really have to be in your hands to keep you from typing but since you are walking in Omaha that’s not really realistic right now. I’m sorry, I tried.

“Rae tells me that you are a Maiden, and it’s your job to be kind of stupid and that I’m not supposed to have intercourse with Maidens. You shouldn’t believe everything that people tell you or you’re going to end up naked and sore, tied to the floor of a van marked ‘Free Candy.’”
