And now for the results of last week's contest: Augustus Sol Invictus, a Libertarian candidate for the Senate from Florida, has admitted to sacrificing a goat and drinking its blood. He also exhorts his followers to "take LSD and practice sorcery… listen to trap music and black metal," and take their girlfriends to strip clubs while seducing the dancers in the back room. We asked you to come up with a bumper sticker for his campaign.
