Devin Hansen has been working on a novel about Lane Evans since at least ’08 and is now soliciting $$$$ in order to complete the project. Those with too much money on their hands should go here to toss your moolah into the abyss.
For $35 you can get a copy of this project, but don’t expect an honest assessment of Evans’ life, times and accomplishments because by Hansen’s own words:
“[At age 9 I] quickly became a life-long admirer of his politics, his intelligence, his humility, and his guts. He truly was one of the last honest men in congress, and now in retirement he continues to be a symbol of perseverance and strength.”
Whatever, just don’t expect truth-telling and a hard-hitting expose of how Evans won an election by violating election law or other nasty stuff. You’ve been warned!
Go to the link for a video of Evans highlights, including a shot of him with Phil Hare. I don’t know about you, but for me, Evans’ legacy is personified in Hare—a dirty back room deal that forced a totally inappropriate congressman upon the 17th CD.
