Stridently right wing Clueless star and former Fox commentator Stacey Dash is running for Congress in California, God help us all. She filed the paperwork yesterday to run in the 44th district (which is currently represented by Democrat Nanette Barragán).
Representatives for Dash did not immediately respond to CNN’s request for comment. Dash has not publicly issued a statement. However, she did tease a potential run earlier this month“A number of people online and off have suggested I run for political office,” she tweeted February 9. “I wanted to see what my online community thinks of this idea as I mull the possibilities. Thoughts?” She attached a graphic of a campaign button, which is red, white and blue and decorated with stars. It reads: “Dash to D.C.”On Feb. 22, she tweeted “Things are taking shape.” The next day, she followed up with: “Soon.”
Dash has courted controversy in the past by suggesting that Black History Month should not exist, and saying she shouldn’t have to suffer transgender rights and that trans people should pee in the bushes. Ugh.
