A US Congressman is a gamer

Is this really something surprising? A US Representative spent his campaign money on a bunch of stuff. Most of which wasn’t really connected to his political career. Since he also bought Steam games. Is this unexpected? No, it’s not. Douchebags like this guy often blow the money that should be used for their political campaigns on fancy family vacations, new cars, and things like that. Duncan D. Hunter did exactly that, and also he’s apparently a gamer. Seeing as he spent $1,302 on Steam. Yeah, it seems like this guy bought a lot of titles. Or maybe he lost all that money on skin gambling in Counter-Strike: Global Offensive. He finally pleaded guilty to stealing hundreds of thousands of dollars. All of which was used by him and his family for a lavish and expensive lifestyle.

We should no longer feel ashamed when we spend a load of cash during Steam sales

Honestly, this is one of the funniest, more absurd stories that I could have read. PC Gamer covered it.  But at least we can all agree. Even an idiotic US Congressman likes to spend his campaign money on Steam games. So, the next time you blow $200 during a Steam sale, buying all these titles you’re never going to play, just remember, a US Representative spent a $1000.

Buying games is nothing to be ashamed of. We all buy games. But, most of us aren’t US Congressmen. However, if you want to buy some games now, I have some offers for you. Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order and Red Dead Redemption 2, both spectacular games, are available for a discounted price right now!
