I have problems understanding the effects of the KKK surrogate. Not how the surrogate is determined but its game effects.
Issue one is the -1 vote mechanic for the candidate that receives the KKK endorsement. Is it for the rest of the game, for the duration of the issue or the duration of the surrogate?
Issue two is that the endorsed candidate can use dirty tricks for free in the south. How many of those? How many turns? Against how many opponents? This can be pretty over powered if it keeps several candidates stranded in the south.

We played that its effect lasted the rest of the game... it's powerful enough to overcome even that. My cousin's whole strategy was to get the KKK Surrogate and it was hard to stop him.

About #2, I don't remember. I think we played it once per turn but I don't remember against how many candidates.

Thanks for the reply. What worries me is that the KKK could steal a turn from a candidate every turn that the issue is active. This is massive. It basically would mean game over for that candidate.
