Benjamin Géza Affleck (b. August 15, 1972) is a Confederate Politician who is the Dixiecrat Senator from Georgia since his victory in the 2020 Georgia Special Senate election.
Early Life and Education
Ben was born to a family of Confederate exiles in the city of Louisville, Kentucky. He grew up in Los Angeles, California near his father’s only foreign factory. He came from Georgian Slave Owners who near the Great War switched to a refrigerator factory and quickly became one of Georgia’s biggest employers but during the Confederate Civil War the factories were occupied and the family kicked out fleeing to their only foreign factory in California. The family moved back to Stephensburg and were given their factories back. Now back to a position of power the family got Ben into Georgetown University to study finance, during that time he was Iago in the school’s rendition of Othello and graduated Cum Laude in 1996 with a Master’s degree in Finance.
In 1996 he enrolled in the army and was stationed in Cuba so he spent many months in Georgia. He was shipped out to Haiti during the 1999 Rebellion and earned himself the rank of lieutenant as well as the Confederate Medal of Bravery along with 4 smaller military honors. He retired from the military in 2000 upon the end of the Haitian rebellion.
In 2000 Affleck was made Vice President of Affleck Electrical Company. He then started to get involved in Politics as he was appointed as the Chair of Lester Maddox II’s Successful campaign for Mayor of Atlanta in 1997. He was a ranking member of the Al Gore for President Campaign for Georgia. In 2000 he got the Georgia Producing rights to DVD to the AEC and became the unofficial head of the Affleck Family. In 2001 he was called upon to get his friend Lester Maddox II elected Governor and was the Chair of the campaign and Maddox won with 59% of the votes. In 2003 he was made Chief Operational Officer of the AEC and opened the Affers stores in Savannah and Atlanta which had some success and sold the AEC appliances.
In 2010 he began to consider a life in politics with pressure from his father-in-law former Confederate President Bill Clinton. His father had also served in the Stephenburg city assembly from 1980 until 1982, which Ben was very proud of. In 2013 Ben announced that he would challenge 2 term incumbent Readjuster Congressman Rob Woodall for the 7th seat as a Dixiecrat. He received connections both from the Capital from his father-in-law and local from his father. He funded the campaign himself saying “My political aspirations should not take a toll on the people which I will serve.” That quote was the highlight reel of the 2014 midterms and gave Affleck a huge boost in the polls with 56% to Woodall’s 40%. Affleck won in a landslide victory eventually grasping 61% of the votes. He was sworn in by Bill Clinton on January 3rd, 2015 and started to take in the Clintonian business Dixiecrat policies. He met with President Huckabee in 2016 to discuss further cooperation between Dixie and the Yankees and was sent out to discuss with Massachusetts Congressman Matt Damon to increase imports and exports between the coasts of the two nations. This was a success and in 2019 he was appoint head of the Congressional caucus on United State relations. He was re-elected in 2016 and 2018 but decided to retire from congress in order to seek the suddenly open Senate seat in Georgia which he would challenge Readjuster Doug Collins for. He secured the Dixiecrat nomination of Jon Ossoff, film maker and went on to the senate race. Collins had been appointed to fill the Georgian Vacancy by President Rubio but he wasn’t a popular politician unlike the young Affleck who had improved the Georgian economy with increased trading. Affleck was polling at 75% most of the campaign and won the election with 71% to Collins meager 29%. Although Affleck had gotten Booth Party support he was sworn in as Senator January 3rd, 2021.
