Real World Alumnus Running For Congress For Real
This is the true story of a Real World alumnus, Sean Duffy, deciding to find out what happens when you stop being polite and get real by running for Congress in Wisconsin to unseat a 40-year incumbent, U.S. Rep. David Obey (D-WI). Duffy, an alumnus of The Real World Boston season many years ago has been serving as the elected District Attorney of Ashland County for the past seven years. Duffy is married to Rachel Campos, a former cast member of The Real World San Francisco, which is best remembered for its outcast member, Puck. Most of the The Real World cast members disqualify themselves from potential political careers because of their irrational and embarrassing moments caught on camera. Duffy was one of the few cast members who managed to make it through a season unscathed. This should prove to be an interesting race. I never imagined someone from The Real World getting into politics, let alone being a Republican.
