In what must be one of the stupidest stories in video game news history, Dimitar Kerin, a city councilman in Plovdiv, Bulgaria was fired from his post after being repeatedly caught playing Farmville during meetings. The city council voted to remove Kerin by shockingly narrow margin, 20-19. Kerin, unhappy with the results, responded by declaring that he needed to play more because members of the council in the opposition party had leveled-up higher than him; rightist Democrat Daniela Zhelyazkova had a level 46 farm, while Kerin’s was only level 40.
