    Chuwit.
    He's the well known Massage Parlours (Davis Group) owner turned politician. Caused quite a stir when he exposed how much money and gifts he had to give those police officers every month for him to run his businesses. Colorful character. Always on posters to bring down his "ex" boss Banharn after he rejected him from his party to take part in the last election.

    Another funny character is Leena Jang. I'll try to take picture her election poster for you guys next time.

    Thanks khun Bucky. This is a really good direction for the thread to go in, because there are only so many Thai language signs in Farangland.

    Thanks Bucky. How did he "go back on his word"? Just curious.

    Banharn was the leader of Thai Nation Party (Phat Chart Thai) and Chuwit used to be under his party after a merger. Anyway for some reasons Chuwit had a fight with Banharn and left the party (or was forced to, I can't remember). During the last election, Banharn was on Democrat's side and sworn will never merge with PPP, but soon after the PPP won the election, Banharn's party joined coalition with PPP.
