From this morning’s Washington Post:
Another capital pastime — politics — was also on display. Adam Eidinger, a frequent D.C. Statehood Green candidate who protested taxpayer financing for the Nationals’ future ballpark in the city, wore an 18th-century-style frock coat, ruffled shirt, knee breeches and white stockings, modeling what he said should be the team’s new mascot, a colonist — a nod to D.C. residents’ status as taxpaying U.S. citizens without a vote in Congress.
Eidinger, a publicist and protest organizer, said he planned to buy 20 tickets for supporters to attend games with flip cards carrying his “Strike-4-Statehood” slogan, hoping to snare television time.
Once I have the approval from a few others, I’ll post the picture / flyer I made using a picture of Adam dressed up as a colonist! I think its great- we beat Major League Baseball and selected a mascot first!
