A New ‘Candidate’ for CA Governor




It seems Linda McMahon, who has stepped into the senate race in Connecticut, is not the only semi-high-profile-celebrity-ish candidate running this cycle.

Prince Frederic von Anhalt, the husband of actress Zsa Zsa Gabor, is announcing his candidacy for Governor of California today:

When I came to California 26 years ago we had the ‘Good Life.’ We were prosperous; people had jobs, affordable homes and money to spend. The economy was great. I loved the state so much that I decided to make my home here, marry and become a citizen.

About 10 years ago things started to deteriorate, and last year when the state was at its worst I decided I had to try and make a difference. I decided to enter the political realm and get California back on the right track.

So today I am announcing that I plan to run for Governor of California! We’ve had Irish-American, African-American, Armenian-American, and Austrian-American Governors and now it’s time for a German-American to lead the state.

His campaign platform, which is titled “Return the Good Life to California,” would “create a Sin Tax” to generate money on the legalization of marijuana, add a 10-cent tax on every drink sold in a restaurant, and “add a buck to every liquor bottle and pack of cigarettes sold.” He would also like to open the border with Mexico and lift the ban on Cuban cigars and products.

I am not sure there is lots to be worried about for Jerry Brown (who has yet to “officially” announce) and the rest of the gang here, but should prove for some entertaining political banter.
