San Jose Councilman Lan Diep Gets Sworn in With Captain America Shield

When it comes to being sworn in for elected officials most of the discussion is what they’ll do it one and possibly what they’ll wear. San Jose Councilman Lan Diep has decided to take things to the next level donning a limited edition movie-prop replica of Captain America‘s shield (the prop from Captain America: The First Avenger was limited to 1,000).

Diep who is a legal aid attorney and “self-professed comics nerd” said that Captain America is the “embodiment of America’s ideals.” And while many eyebrows were raised Diep’s reaction is “government should be fun.”

Don’t tell him about Hydra-Cap…
