On Grindr, Vroege asked voters if he's "got a date with you on March 19." (Research confirms that this was the election date and not an orgy appointment.) In any case, this strategy didn't necessarily give the electorate blue balls, as their party ended up winning big in Amsterdam.
California Politician Associates Himself With House of Cards
Even if you've never watched an episode of House of Cards, you're probably smart enough to know that this is a show about power-hungry, corrupt scuzzballs that you'd hate to share a room with, much less have govern you. Every main character is so egregiously evil, you think they're going to drop the Southern charm and grow Hitler mustaches any minute.
That's why it's hilarious that a California Republican thought House of Cards was the theme to anchor his congressional campaign. In a move that probably worked better in his head, Carl DeMaio took a look at the show titles and said "House of Cards ... cards ... cards. Hmmm ... I've got it!"

It's better than his Kate Mara themed photo shoot.
