President Lawton Trapped in Scandal
Oct 14, 2012
Current president Don Lawton is caught in a scandal currently as it is being alledged that the new drug law he passed, which only punished dealers and cultivators, not possersors (but it did seize illegal substances from possesers.) Was created with the purpose that Lawton's new drug seizure agency HADKPS (Halt All Distribution, Keep the People Safe) sold the seized drugs back to organized crime agencies, who took a huge hit after all drugs were decriminalised in Gibland by the previous president. No arrests have been made yet but if Lawton is arrested he will be the second president to be arrested during a term, all the opposition parties are requesting he call an election and he is expected to respond to this within the next couple days, unless he is convicted, in which case he will be forced to resign.
