Personhood amendments and you: A Lady News primer
Like most Americans, Louis Ortiz was unemployed in 2008. Unlike most Americans, his face was on the front page of every newspaper. Well, not his face exactly — just an as-yet-unknown contender named Barack Obama with whom Ortiz shared an uncanny resemblance. After Obama won, Ortiz became a full-time presidential impersonator known as “Bronx Obama.” We brought him on Midterm Mayhem to ask whether he hangs out with real politicians (wisely, no) and whether Obama follows him on Twitter (yes!).
