Libertarian Girl Mystery
Ever since she began blogging, people accused Libertarian Girl of being a fraud. Her critics claimed that a libertarian blog run by a young, attractive female is too good to be true, and that the author is probably just a guy desperate for attention. In her defense, LG called these critics sexist for assuming that just because she's a libertarian wonk, she can't also be an attractive young female. No one ever accuses purportedly male libertarian bloggers of being women in real life.
I've reserved judgement until now, but something is beginning to smell fishy. Wazoo turned my attention to this personal ad on a mail-order bride website, containing a photo of "Viktoriya," who shares a striking resemblance to Libertarian Girl.
- Did one of LG's enemies set up a fake profile on the Russian mail-order bride website in order to make LG look like a fraud?
- Did LG nab the photo from the Russian website in order to create a fake online identity and attract lots of horny male libertarians?
- Are LG and Viktoriya identical twin sisters, separated at birth, with the same taste in clothes, watches, and hairstyles?
- Are LG and Viktoriya the very same person, but with two different alter egos: D.C. policy wonk by day, desperate Ukrainian bachelorette by night?
Personally, I'm leaning more toward to the twin sister angle - not because I find it to be the most plausible theory, but because it would make for a much better Lifetime Original Movie than the alternatives, with maybe some lesbian incest thrown in for good measure.
