In this great nation of ours, you have the right to be hateful. You have the right to be miserable. You have the right to be ignorant. But you do NOT have the right to legislate your ignorance and force Conduits into a state of second-class citizenship. That is the shameful purpose of Senator Geoffrey Winegard's re-election efforts, and we have dedicated this site to stopping him with the most powerful weapon at our disposal: the truth.

You may be surprised to learn that Winegard doesn’t care one iota about the so-called “bio-terror threat.” No, he just preaches to his pathetic choir to earn votes and, more importantly, campaign contributions. Winegard only bows down to the almighty dollar, and he’d gladly sell out his philosophies to the highest bidder. It just so happens that the highest bidder hates Conduits, and his name is Jonas Petrovich.

Listen to the following audio, but be warned: Winegard’s flagrant avarice is not for the squeamish.

SUBJECT: Sorry about your buddy Petrovich

From: Smitty

To: Sen. Winegard

Hate to be the bearer of bad news, but Jonas Petrovich just showed up dead in the Crocodile Club. The conditions of his death are shady, at best. Let me know if you need anything.

--Reinholdt “Smitty” Smithson, Chief of Staff

To: Smitty

What does this mean for our plan? Petrovich was engineering the fake assassination story brilliantly. I hate to compliment a lobbyist of his predilections, but that guy was a gutter genius.

From: Smitty

To: Sen. Winegard

Well, not to sound too ghoulish, but Jonas’ death plays perfectly into our hand. The supposed threat of bioterrorism just went from theoretical to existential. Voters will eat this up!

From: Sen. Winegard

To: Smitty

Does he have a widow? If so, send her flowers. In the meantime, how do we proceed?

From: Smitty

To: Sen. Winegard

I’ll get right on it senator. I’ve already contacted our media point people and the street teams necessary to manufacture our narrative. They all feel some sort of allegiance to Petrovich – like this will be his swan song or corruption writ large.

From: Sen. Winegard

To: Smitty

Sounds like you’re on the case. Let’s keep communication to a minimum and move forward as planned.
