Honest Gil Fulbright

Honest Gil Fulbright is a satirical political candidate portrayed by Frank Ridley. Fulbright originally "ran" for the U.S. Senate in 2014 as an "honest politician for Kentucky" on behalf of Represent.US.

Fulbright has been featured on CNN, The Today Show, Fox & Friends, Al Jazeera, The Washington Post, and The Huffington Post.

The campaign got a powerful boost when noted artist Shepard Fairey reimagined his iconic Obama HOPE poster as a Gil Fulbright SOLD poster to help raise funds for the finance-reform-minded satirical campaign. His campaign message was "I'm only in this thing for the money, but at least I'm honest about it." Fulbright is currently considering a run at the 2016 presidential election.
