October Surprise?

I have no idea if this is a hoax or not, but there are reports that the former CEO of the Clinton Foundation has requested political asylum at the Russian Consulate in New York City:

Eric Braverman, yesterday (23 October), arrived at the Consulate of Russia in New York City and presented his “urgent and immediate” request for asylum on a visa application—as is “protocol/custom” because the Federation does not accept mail or electronic visa applications from residents of the continental United States.

Crazy… and if true, damning.
