After Google made available for sale to the public its wearable computer Google Glass earlier this week, in its beta “Explorer” edition, Republican Congressional candidate for Tennessee’s 3rd District Weston Wamp announced that he had purchased one, in order to record all conversations.

Wamp received criticism when on March 15, at a visit to former opponent Scottie Mayfield’s house, he secretly recorded his conversation with Mayfield and Mayfield’s wife Lisa on his iPhone when attempting to earn Mayfield’s endorsement, later informing Mayfield by text message, “To protect myself, I have recorded my conversation with you and Lisa.”

“It is imperative, to keep Tennessee and our nation competitive, that we explore the latest technology,” said Wamp at a press conference yesterday, where he sported the optical head-mounted display. “And I am leading the way, being the first Congressional candidate to vow to wear Google Glass at all times.”

“Recording one conversation offers me a little protection, so recording all of my conversations will maximize my protection,” said Wamp. “Anyone who is running against a dishonest congressman who has already been sued for defamation of character would do the same thing.”

“This is exciting news,” said local technology enthusiast Margareta Kaskel. “I want to be a part of history, by voting for the first Glasshole Congressman.”

After the press conference, Wamp tilted his head upward and said, “O.K. Glass, get directions to Dave & Buster’s.”
