White House Crasher Tareq Salahi Is Running for Governor (Seriously)

Tareq SalahiYou know those headlines that stop you dead in your tracks and make you choke on whatever you're eating, because they're so outrageous? Well, today, this one did it for me: "Tareq Salahi To Run For Virginia Governor." Yes, THAT Tareq Salahi, the same one who rose to fame on The Real Housewives of D.C., after crashing the White House. He wants to be governor of an actual state (or commonwealth if we're getting technical).

I don't know whether to laugh or cry, or both. We should have learned long ago never to underestimate his insanity, but I thought we'd get a little reprieve from his skeeviness after the judge threw out his ridiculous lawsuit against his ex, Michaele Salahi, and her new man, Neal Schon just a couple of weeks ago. I thought if he had any dignity, he'd at least go away for awhile. Of course, that was my mistake, because it's clear the man has no dignity or any pride.


He's completely delusional, and when it comes to his bid for mayor, it sounds like he's actually serious. Virginians, be warned. In a written statement declaring his intention to run, he said:

As a Virginia native for the last 42 years, I am troubled to see how our current political figure heads continue to waste tax payer dollars during these difficult economic times! I'm a big believer in limited government, keeping taxes, regulation and litigation low.

I can just see Neal and Michaele hooting now.

According to CNN, while he has submitted a filing application (on which he wrote the wrong date for the election -- his states November 6, 2013 and it's actually November 5 -- ha!), he will still have to file a declaration for candidacy early next year. In order to do so, he has to get signatures from 10,000 registered Virginia voters, including at least 400 from each of Virginia's 11 congressional districts. Surely that many people couldn't be crazy enough to support him ... could they?

The thought of him in politics is beyond laughable and frightening, honestly. Kim Kardashian as mayor is one thing, but Salahi is one of the most dishonest, swindling, flat-out creepy men ever to come into the national eye. Actually, come to think of it, he might actually fit in to political circles quite nicely.

What do you think of Tareq Salahi running for governor of Virginia?
