Guess who may run for mayor of West Palm Beach, Florida! Mark Foley is certain the voters would give him a chance. “I do have the luxury that I can be the last man to file if I choose to, and still have the name ID,” he told a local newspaper. That does sound very luxurious! Mark Foley will announce his candidacy from a steamy hot tub full of only the finest chocolates and Taylor Lautner impersonators. Or that will probably be how he announces; we don’t know for sure because he made his Twitter account private after we shared its beauty with the rest of the Internet. Sure, voters may be more likely to vote for an Al Qaeda candidate than Mark Foley. But he seems pretty sure they still like him despite everything.
Should he run, Foley, a Republican, could easily outspend the other opponents by using the $1 million he has left over in his congressional campaign funds.
But Foley said he would likely raise money from scratch if he declares, believing it would be unfair to use the congressional money for a mayoral run, even though federal law allows it.
