And it just keeps getting weirder:
PONTIAC — Assisted suicide advocate Jack Kevorkian is planning a run for Congress.
Kevorkian was released from prison last year and remains on parole. But the 79-year-old told The Oakland Press for an article published Wednesday that he plans to run for office as a candidate with no party affiliation.
“We need some honesty and sincerity instead of corrupt government in Washington,” Kevorkian said.
He said he would say more about his candidacy next week.
Kevorkian lives in Oakland County and the 9th District. That’s a seat now held by Republican Joe Knollenberg. Democrat Gary Peters also is among those planning to run for the seat.
Unfortunately, I no longer live in the 9th, having moved into Sander Levin’s district a couple of years ago. I’m not a huge Knollenberg fan, but I would gladly pull the lever for him to offset the goofballs and Ron Paul supporters that will go ga ga for Dr. Death.
Exit question, can convicted felons run for congress? I know, it’s probably a prerequisite these days, but seriously?
