In most election cycles, you'll pretty much never get candidates to bare their souls. But in this election cycle, you'll get other people to bare their... well, selves, all in the name of voting against one candidate.
"Tramps Against Trump" promises to send nude pics to anyone who votes against Donald Trump, rocking the vote in its own special way. The group's inspiration comes from Canada, where “Sluts Against Harper" traded nude photos for votes against candidate Stephen Harper. Tramps Against Trump is running basically the same campaign, hoping boob and dick pics are enough to steal Donald Trump's thunder.
OK, so how do you get your nude in exchange for your vote? Well, apparently you just have to take a picture of yourself and your voter receipt or "i voted sticker," and then send it to the group via email, Tumblr, or Snapchat (trampsxtrump). You don't even have to show who you're voting for. The group makes it clear that it doesn't care who you vote for as long as you're against Donald Trump. In response to your pic, you'll get that nude photo. And just to be clear, this isn't just for men wanting to ogle women. Tramps Against Trump has someone for everyone.
Speaking of her campaign, Tramps Against Trump's creator, Jessica Rabbit -- yes, that's a pseudonym -- told Motherboard, “In the past we had Rock the Vote and other ways to get the vote out, but what do young people like now? They like naked people on the internet. So, we’re using naked people on the internet to make a change and get people excited about something.” That's certainly one way to get young people involved in politics. And keeping with that message, the Tramps Against Trump website is not all semi-nude women. There's also a link directing people to register to vote.
