Biography

Life and Death

Huey Long

From Wikipedia

Huey Pierce Long, Jr. (August 30, 1893-September 10, 1935), nicknamed The Kingfish, was an American politician from the U.S. state of Louisiana. A Democrat, he was noted for his radical populist policies. He served as governor of Louisiana from 1928 to 1932 and as a U.S. senator from 1932 to 1935. Though a backer of Franklin D. Roosevelt in the 1932 presidential election, Long split with Roosevelt in June 1933 and allegedly planned to mount his own presidential bid.

Long created the Share Our Wealth program in 1934, with the motto "Every Man a King," proposing new wealth redistribution measures in the form of a net asset tax on large corporations and individuals of great wealth to curb the poverty and crime resulting from the Great Depression. Charismatic and immensely popular for his social reform programs and willingness to take forceful action, Long was accused by his opponents of dictatorial tendencies for his near-total control of the state government. At the height of his popularity, the colorful and flamboyant Long was shot on September 8, 1935, at the Louisiana State Capitol in Baton Rouge; he died two days later at the age of 42. His last words were reportedly, "God, don't let me die. I have so much to do."

Interim

Not much is known about exactly when Long resurrected, nor exactly when he arrived in Malton or how he got there. Some believe that he reanimated in his native Louisiana and drifted to Malton by following the ocean currents; others say that his corpse was being used by NecroTech in its experiments at the behest of an unknown group of Louisiana radicals intent on bringing him back to life (and political power). Variants of both theories state that Long himself is personally responsible for the first outbreaks, with some going so far as to say that it was he who bit the first victim.

Of course, due to his current state of undeath, Long himself has not volunteered any information as to the circumstances of his reappearance or his whereabouts.

Activity in Malton

Regardless of how he arrived in Malton, the first confirmed identification of ex-Senator Long was on January 27th, 2007. Sporadic sightings have been reported since then.

The first major revelation as to the existence of Huey Long that the world received was, however, his announcement in the 2007 elections for Mayor of Malton. However, he was defeated at the primaries; see here for Huey's campaign page.

Currently a member of Lebende Tote.

Closing Statement

Well, in the end, Huey lost :( However, it was a good race, full of great people and interesting events, and I have no regrets for anything I might have done on the campaign trail. If I had it to do over again, I wouldn't change a bit of it.

First of all, I would like to congratulate Mr. Suskind and Mr. Bullgod on a job well done. Both of them have shown remarkable restraint in not assembling lynch mobs to pummel me for some of the criticism I've offered on their campaign platforms :p , and I would like to thank them both for a clean fight to the finish. The best of luck to whichever of the two of you eventually gets the nomination when this little tie is resolved.

Second, I would like to thank my loyal group members, the Lebende Tote, and my two most devoted staff members SmokingBassoon and Grumio in particular, for their support in this campaign. I seriously would not have gone as far as I did without you guys backing me up, and in some cases even encouraging me through the difficult times. Rest assured, your loyalty will not be forgotten by this ol' boy.

Finally, in order but not in importance, I would like to thank all of my faithful and devoted voters for showing their support. Had I received only one single vote, that vote would have made this whole campaign worthwhile.

The struggle for the Zombiecratic Primary is over (well, almost). However, the fight for the equal and fair distribution of cerebral assets among all of Malton's population has just begun. Regardless of who is Mayor, rest assured that I, Huey Pierce Long, Jr., will not rest until I have brought about this goal, and I shall do everything in my power to bring brains to the starving masses of Malton's feral population. As long as Malton's survivors continue to hoard their ill-gotten spoils and keep them out of the hands of those who toil by the sweat of their brow and don't even get to enjoy what they do get before it's taken away from them, as long as the NecroTech Corporation continues to exploit the people of Malton for its own gain, you'll find me right there in the thick of it, demanding that Malton's most infamous offenders be brought to account for their transgressions.

Remember the cry of, "Share Our Bra!nz!!"
