Sunday, August 03, 2003The lead singer of the punk band T.S.O.L has announced he will run for governor in California during the Gray Davis recall vote. His platform includes health-care reform, legalizing and taxing both marijuana and prostitution, and full amnesty for undocumented aliens.
"For years I was always, 'F--- the government. F--- the government. F--- the government.' I was always bitching and not doing a thing about it," he explained. "And the other day I said, 'Now I am.' I just got tired of seeing people hurt, that was the biggest thing. I got three sisters who are teachers, two brothers who are police officers, a bunch of friends who are labor workers, dock workers. I work with undocumented alien immigrants all the time and I got tired seeing what they go through and no one caring. And they put this new budget out and the first thing they slash is health care and the first thing they start screwing is the people."
