Buffalo Beast editor Ian Murphy is planning a career change. Murphy, infamous for prank calling Wisconsin Governor Scott Walker while pretending to be oil tycoon David Koch is planning a run for Congress.
Murphy will be the Green Party candidate in New York’s 26th district, the seat vacated by Chris Lee. Madmen, you remember Chris. He was looking for love on Craigslist and sent a shirtless pic of himself to a woman in response to her “Woman seeking Man” classified ad. He resigned shortly after the pictures came to light.
Murphy issues include job creation, a plan to raise taxes on the rich and a promise to take on bloated defense spending.
He better tell them why he’s mad.
