Politician Fired For Farmville


Posted March 31, 2010 - By Stephen Johnson


Facebook game Farmville scares me more than the Resident Evil series. It's not just my duckling phobia either. I've seen too many strong men and women seduced by the Farmville siren and dragged to their doom. Like Bulgarian politician Dimitar Kerin.

Kerin was a member of the city council for the region of Plovdiv, Bulgaria’s second-largest city, and he spent so much time playing Farmville he lost his gig. A bunch of Bulgarian politicians were caught playing the social networking game in an official budget meeting in early March, then fellow committee member Todor Hristov suggested that Kerin be removed from his seat as he “needs more time for his virtual farm.”

A vote was taken, and Kerin was axed. His defense was kind of awesome. He argued that he was only level 40, and a fellow  councilman was Level 46, so why not fire that guy? Sadly, the "I'm just a noob!" defense fell through, and Kerin is looking for work. Hopefully his new employers will filter their internet.

Have you ever been caught playing games at work?
