Arrrrrr you serious?!? LOLz.
King William III has replaced corrupt New York governor Benjamin Fletcher, who was until recently also the governor of Pennsylvania. It was discovered that Fletcher was accepting bribes of $100 to allow illegal trading of pirate treasure. He has been replaced by Richard Coote, 1st Earl of Bellomont.
Well, if there’s one group of people you want on your side - it’s the pirates!!!
The best part of it is that Lord Bellomont sponsored Captain Kidd. Whoops!
