Minnesota Vampyre candidate arrested.
A vampire seeking to become Minnesota's next governor was arrested recently in Indiana. Jonathon Sharkey, arrested on outstanding warrants for jailbreak and stalking—two activities which might not win over voters, necessarily, but which certainly do establish his vampire credentials, if that's what he's going for.
Since Minnesota gubernatorial candidates don't actually file until July, there's a chance that Sharkey will be able to get all this sorted out before the campaign starts.
Sharkey also has pro-wrestling credentials to boost his profile, which is known to be a bonus in Minnesota politics.
Sharkey is looking to unseat Governor Tim Pawlenty, who is a Republican seeking reëlection. If elected, Sharkey would be the first vampire governor in Minnesota history.
