Best 'Star Wars' reference used in modern political story

The award goes to Anthony Soares, Hoboken city councilman. His concern? That the current mayor, David Roberts, will wield too much power if he wins election:
"Have you seen 'Revenge of the Sith'?" said Anthony Soares, a city councilman allied with Ms. Marsh and up for re-election. "That's what Hoboken could be like. If the mayor controls the entire Council, it'll be a disaster."

Mayor Palpatine? No doubt he'll hunt down the peace-loving members of the Fund for a Better Waterfront.
