Super-Patriot Linda McMahon, then-CEO of World Wrestling Entertainment, announced that she would run for the U.S. Senator from Connecticut's seat in September, 2009.
And, as a show of good-faith to her constituents, she announced that she would not use one cent of public campaign funds to buy her Senate seat.
Instead, she will spend $50 million of her own money, coming almost exclusively from the royalties that would have to be paid to wrestlers, had they not tragically died so young.
"I feel that each and every member of the WWE is part of my family," said Linda McMahon, allegedly. "And, just like I exploit my family, I shall exploit their memory by using the money that should go to their widows and orphans to finance my purchase of the Senate seat.
Indeed, on May 21, 2010, she thanked the tragic victims of her family's alleged greed and corruption, when she won a majority of support from the Connecticut Republican Party.
"If it were not for all of those wrestlers who died before age 50, I could not promise lower taxes, fiscal conservatism, and exploitation of the people of Connecticut," said McMahon's acceptance speech, which was written in Aramaic, the native language of McMahon and all Demons and hell-spawn.
