Okay, so apparently I need either ten thousand signatures or sixty-five signatures and $3,500 to get my name on the ballot in the recall election.

I think it's time to form an exploratory committee!

{ This would be one of the times I'm sad that I don't have that audience of thousands to tap's a lot easier to ask for 3500 $1 contributions than one $3500 one. ;-) }

Actually the REAL trick is more like finding 65 Libertarians...

Go for it. What do you have to lose? Cali is loaded with Libertarians and has actually seen Libertarians elected to office.

But would you really want the masses dissecting your voting record, sound bites and private life the way they dissected your RAW reports?!?

I mean, it's okay to forget a manvuer's name after recapping for 6 hours, but if you slip after two glasses of wine at that charity benefit--look out.

All this to say--if you're serious about public office, go for it.

I'd vote for you, CRZ....but then again, I don't live in California. Moral support, however.

I've been thinking of running for mayor of London in the only costs $200 and you need to get a bunch of signatures. Our current mayor is clueless enough that I should take a shot just to prove a moral point, if anything.

I hate signature requirements. I am pondering making a quixotic stand against my current rep (Henry Hyde) knowing that my district is hardcore GOP country, just because SOMEONE needs to run against him. But even for party primaries you need a decently large signature base. And god help you if you don't want to run in a major run for the House you need something like 25,000 signatures in IL.

Go for it. Everybody, regardless of party, should have a challenger. Nobody deserves a free pass.

Hearing about other state laws makes me glad I'm in Maryland, where you only need to pay a filing fee to get on the ballot as a major party candidate, starting from $25 for County Council, up to $290 to run for Governor. Getting into the Democratic or Republican primary for Congress is only $100!

CRZ, if you're really gonna do this, I'll be more than happy to throw $5 or $10 in the "WALKING~! to Power" campaign kitty.

Z In 3 sounds like a good campaign slogan. If the voting laws are lax in California, then it might be easy for those of us on the board who are morally bankrupt to stuff the ballot box.
