Democracy at its best!
Through a little-known loophole in Vermont state law, a 14-year-old boy, Ethan Sonneborn, is running for governor—despite being too young to vote, or even drive!
And lest you think this is just some teenage prank, the kid—er, candidate—seems downright earnest...and maybe even full of some good ideas?
“I think Vermonters should take me seriously because I have practical progressive ideas, and I happen to be 14, not the other way around,” Sonneborn said in a recent forum broadcast on television. “I think that my message and my platform transcend age.”
