Great-grandchild of Brad, sent back in time in a desperate bid to prevent the Great Meme War of 2087 by legislative means.

or at the very least using the money to pursue sexual preditors, vs the hit and miss of what this bill would cause.

"Voters love tyranny! And we Republicans need voters. Bad. Real bad. It hasn't been this bad in decades. Oh please, distance me from the President."

This is your chance to kill the measure through name dilution. If there are two Fitzpatricks, one for, one against the bill, people will be confused, unable figure out who(m) to follow, and consequently default to the status quo. This is what PR teams are for!

Oh yeah, and do something about the hair, it's too distinguishing.
