"I am the storm."

This is from Mallory Hagan, 2013 Miss America, who had alleged that the board of the pageant had tried to ruin her career. People wrote her off... until emails from the pageant board got released. People were calling for the board to step down, but they were shrugging it off.

Quote
In one video on social media, Hagan challenged board members who were reluctant to step down. “They thought they could weather this storm,” she said into the camera. “I am the storm.”

The board members are now apparently all gone and Hagan is running for Congress. I'd vote for her if I lived in Alabama. Gotta believe she's a longshot (Democrat in AL), but... she's got style!

“In business, this is what we do here—we just break the rules,” he said. “Life is so much easier by breaking the rules than trying to conform to the rules. It's so much easier.”
