There’s Someone Planning To Run For President From PRISON, And It’s Not Who…
We are getting close to the next election cycle and that means people are beginning to throw their hats in the ring.
Of course, we all know Donald Trump is running and Nikki Halley is, but here is one person that I did not see coming.
Ok, if you remember during the height of the COVID fiasco, everyone was glued to their streaming services since we were all “quarantined” to our homes.
One person that shot up in prominence was Joe Exotic who is better known as the “Tiger King.” Joe has announced that he is running for president from prison.
Yeah, things just got interesting.
The 60-year-old is currently serving a 21-year prison sentence for, among other things, conspiracy to commit murder. The murder charges were extensively covered in the upcoming Netflix series “Tiger King.”
However, jail, a fall from grace, inability to access large exotic animals, and even his nemesis Carole Baskin cannot deter the eccentric criminal from running for President, he indicated this week online.

Joe Exotic, real name Joseph Maldonado-Passage, announced his candidacy in a message posted to his campaign website.
In the statement, Maldonado-Passage acknowledged his living situation but asked voters to consider him again in November.
“Thank you for your interest in my Campaign,” the statement said. “Yes, I know I am in Federal Prison and you might think this is a joke but it’s not. It is my Constitutional right to do this even from here.”
He went on to accuse the Department of Justice of being a corrupt institution that unfairly targeted him.
“I have been put here only because of the corruption in the Department of Justice, three felons that were told how to lie under oath to further this agenda, two corrupt Assistant U.S. Attorneys, two corrupt FBI Agents and one corrupt Federal Wildlife Agent,” he said.
Maldonado-Passage, who is running as a libertarian, referred to his previous behavior and lifestyle and asked voters to look past it in order to build a better America.
He also mentioned Baskin, whose assassination he ordered but was never carried out.
“So put aside that I am gay, that I am in prison for now, that I used drugs in the past, that I had more [than] one boyfriend at once and that Carole hates my guts,” he said.
“This all has not a thing to do with me being able to be your voice. The best thing you have going for supporting me is that I am used to fighting my whole life just to get by,” he added.
In terms of policy, Maldonado-Passage intends to run on a platform of shutting down the IRS and demanding accountability for how taxpayer dollars are spent overseas by the federal government.

“I am here because I have a world platform to make these politicians listen to your and my concerns and give us some answers for once because all they do is lie to all of us, take our hard earned money calling it taxes, and give it away to foreign countries without them giving us anything back,” his announcement said.
Maldonado-Passage concluded, “I am broke, they have taken everything I ever worked for away, and it’s time we take this country back.”
According to The Oklahoman, the 60-year-old is being held at the Federal Medical Center at Butner prison in Durham County, North Carolina.
In 2021, the former Oklahoma zookeeper was diagnosed with prostate cancer.
The way the last few years have gone, this does not surprise me in the least.
