Dr. Death Running for Congress

This corpse seems like a perfect fit for the Democrat Party, but I guess it's just as well he runs unaffiliated since the media wouldn't identify him as a Democrat if he were one.
Assisted suicide advocate Jack Kevorkian is planning to run for Congress in Michigan. Kevorkian is on parole since being released from prison last year.

He tells The Oakland Press newspaper that he plans to run without party affiliation for the congressional sea now held by Republican Joe Knollenberg.

Kevorkian needs a minimum of 3,000 signatures on nominating petitions to appear as an independent on the November ballot.

Oakland County Prosecutor Dave Gorcyca, whose office was responsible for sending Kevorkian to prison, did not give Kevorkian's candidacy much weight.

"It's probably more of a publicity stunt," Gorcyca said. "To call attention to himself is standard protocol for Jack when he doesn't have the limelight focused on him. I would not consider his candidacy to be a legitimate one."
