Dilbert Creator Scott Adams Endorses Mitt Romney in Blog, Cites Medical Marijuana Arrests by Barack Obama Administration
The author of a comic strip which adorns cubicles and offices across the nation has endorsed a candidate for President of the United States.
Scott Adams, the creator of Dilbert, announced in his personal blog Wednesday that he is supporting Republican Presidential candidate Mitt Romney for the position.
Adams began with caveat for readers that the blog was “written for a rational audience that likes to have fun wrestling with unique or controversial points of view,” and then introduced a hypothetical situation regarding a successful CEO that had killed a person to further his career, or a President that had done the same heinous action.
He continued by saying that while President Obama hasn’t killed anyone to get elected, his administration has worked to put California resident Aaron Sandusky in prison for ten years to life for operating a medical marijuana dispensary, which is legal in the state of California, according to the Huffington Post.
This comes after Obama had said in 2008 that he would not support federal raids and prosecutions on these dispensaries in respect to the state’s law on the matter.
Adams continued, saying “So while President Obama didn’t technically kill a citizen, he is certainly ruining this fellow’s life, and his family’s lives, and the lives of countless other minor drug offenders. And he is doing it to advance his career.”
The cartoonist finished, saying that “jailing American citizens for political gain simply has to be a firing offense no matter how awesome you might be in other ways.”
