Gerlach, NV – (CN) Willard Romney, who goes by the Burner name ‘Mitt’ handily swept the three counties that comprise Burning Man in Saturday’s Republican Human Caucus Wash. Pershing, Lyon and Washoe Counties have most of the operational control of the Event North of Reno and all were easily won by Romney.
The vote reflects the deep Mormon roots of Burning Man as well as contentment with the Burner establishment. Recent 2012 ticket lottery chaos and discontentment had many Burning Man analysts and pundits predicting a win for outsider Ron Paul. At a campaign stop in Elko a few days before the caucus Paul won large applause promising an ‘Audit the Burn’ bill to be introduced into Congress.
“Burning Man can just print tickets without any accountability and randomly pick winners like its some kind of lottery. That’s not in the Constitution. If Audit the Burn passes Congress this will end!.”
