The Tea Party’s Wannabe Lord
Reached this morning, Dodge confirmed in a phone interview that he does possess the title.
But he said it is basically an honorary title purchased for him back in the 1990s, by his mother as a birthday present. It is akin, he said, to having someone buy a piece of the moon for you as a present. Dodge has lived in England on and off, he says, and his wife is British; plus his Dodge family name dates back centuries in England, to the Norman invasion of 1066, Dodge said.
The title has “no property and no power” attached to it, Dodge said. He says he is a Maine resident who lives in Harpswell.
