AS FAR AS election pledges go, promising not to take money from political allies or developers is a fairly standard one. However, pledging not to spend your $100,000 a year salary on strippers is fairly novel.
As is telling your electorate to “Wake the f**k up”.
Even more novel is emerging from a lake in your underwear to do both of those things. Fortunately, Jeffrey Alan Wagner has no truck with ceremony or traditional views on what a political ad should be.
Wagner, who is running for mayor of Minneapolis, the largest city in Minnesota, tells viewers that the “media and the money” are deciding the race, which will be run on 5 November.
Wagner is listed as one of ten candidates under the banner of the Democratic-Farmer-Labour Party (DFL) and faces tough competition from within his own party.
Even if he comes through that test, a man by the name of Captain Jack Sparrow is also on the ballot.
