Lenin Tries To Stop Hitler From Becoming Mayor,

I had to read the headline twice,

before I realised I had heard of Hitler Alba Sánchez some time go, he was the mayor of Yungar, a remote town in the Peruvian Andes, between 2011 and 2014, and he is now trying out for a second term, famous because of his name, he is also known as ‘Hitler of the Andes’ or ‘The Good Hitler’, and of course the penny dropped, his candidacy was challenged by a local man called Lenin Vladimir Rodríguez Valverde, who claimed that Hitler wasn’t eligible because of his previous term as mayor, Alba Sánchez claims that he doesn’t know Lenin or his motives for attacking his campaign, but he suspects that he is affiliated with opposition parties, He’s not too worried about it though, as he is convinced that people remember the good he did during his first term and will turn out to vote for him on October 7,

“The Good Hitler returns to these elections with the support of friends and sympathizers,” the 37-year-old candidate told RPP, “We have always done good and people know us.” people have been curious to know how and why his parents named him after one of the most hated figures in human history, Alba Sánchez claims that foreign names were very popular in Peru during the 1980s, and his father, who didn’t know anything about Adolf Hitler, heard the name one time and liked it because it sounded foreign, He was never a Nazi sympathizer or an admirer of the German dictator, and Alba Sánchez himself condemned the actions and ideology of his namesake, adding that the name is the only thing they have in common,

asked if he ever considered changing his name, the Hitler of the Andes told Peruvian reporters that he had did want to do that at some point, but he had already entered politics, and all his friends and supporters knew him by his first name, so changing it just wasn’t practical, so that is why the headline read Lenin Tries to Stop Hitler from Becoming Mayor, so easy now I know the answer!
