Dr. Death Running for Congress
Jack Kevorkian, known as Dr. Death for his role in assisting patients to commit suicide, has decided on a new career now that he is done serving time in jail for murder:
Jack Kevorkian, who spent eight years in prison for his role in an assisted suicide, will take on another crusade Monday: a race for Congress. He has planned a 10 a.m. news conference in Southfield to discuss his decision to run for Congress. He lives in the 9th Congressional District, which is represented by U.S. Rep. Joe Knollenberg, a Bloomfield Township Republican.
Kevorkian, 79, is expected to run as an independent. He was convicted in 1999 of second-degree murder in the Sept. 17, 1998, death of Thomas Youk, 52, of Waterford. Youk had Lou Gehrig’s disease. Kevorkian has said he participated in at least 130 assisted suicides during the 1990s. He was released from prison in June.
I don’t expect him to do to well, he probably murdered to many of his likely supporters!!
