Oh, this is just too good to be true comedy-wise.

Former Boy Band Member To Run For Mayor

A former boy band member announced his plan to run for Cincinnati mayor Friday.

Justin Jeffre, a singer and dancer in the former pop group 98 Degrees, will launch his campaign April 2 at Purgatory nightclub in Over-The-Rhine.

The club announced the event and publicized Nick Lachey and friends as the hosts.

Lachey, also a Cincinnati native, was a 98 Degrees bandmate. He currently stars in the MTV reality series 'Newlyweds.'

I thought Nick Lachey was the one who wanted to be mayor?

More importantly, is Purgatory a new club? Or am I just that out of it?

No, it's just a hip way to say Cincinnati. ;)

I wonder what being a campaign worker pays?

And more importantly, how many cute young girls will I be working with? :devil:

Since this guy is somewhat of a celebrity, maybe you will be working with these two. ;)

If 13 year old girls could vote, he'd be a shoe-in. Thankfully, no one has started a 'childrens suffrage' movement just yet.

Heck... if Jerry Springer can become a mayor in a large city in this country, then I wouldn't put it past anyone (or any urban voters) to win a mayoral election.

Jerry was mayor where?!!? :dflynn:

I wonder if he wins if he'll have 4 aides behind him at all times wearing headsets and coreographed press conferences.

Good point, Chip. I also wonder if Justin will have women wanting "his beads" at press conferences! Gotta be better lookers than Jerry's bead-wanters.

JUSTIN FOR MAYOR!!! :devil:

I dont really think he'll come close to getting voted in.

Now if it was Nick Lachey running for Mayor I could see him having a better shot a getting it.

Lots more info here (http://www.cincypost.com/2005/03/23/mayor032305.html). Should have known reality TV was involved somehow.


In other news: Purgatory is at 12th and Walnut streets, the former site of Club Clau.

GRRRR...as you obviously know, Springer was mayor long before he was on TV, as an anchor or talk-show host. He actually has a compelling background, an immigrant who became a fine attorney and eventually mayor. Also seems like a nice guy in person.

He also got busted for bouncing a check to a Newport hooker (for services rendered) BEFORE being elected as the Mayor.

"Now tell me again Nick, the Bengals are the baseball team and the Reds are the football team, right?"

Yeah, that'd go over well. ;)

My understanding was that Springer was mayor due to a power-sharing agreement between Charter and the Democrats. Therefore, I believe he was never actually 'elected' mayor. Is that correct?
