Wanted Man Runs (for Office, That Is)

Jack Shepard is running for office again, despite still being wanted on an arson charge and continuing to live in Italy.

This time, the dentist is challenging U.S. Sen. Amy Klobuchar in the Democratic-Farmer-Laborite primary next year.

A Shepard news release indicates he “is running to eliminate Sen. Klobuchar because he is unhappy and very disappointed about many of Sen. Klobuchar votes in the Senate.” Those votes include those to keep troops in Iraq, reducing American liberties and failing to clean up the air.

Shepard has run for several other Minnesota offices from his Italian home, never making much headway.
