Activist, Venice local, political gadfly and blogger Zuma Dogg has collected enough signatures to hopefully qualify for the March 3rd ballot to run for Mayor of Los Angeles, he announced on his blog today. "So out of the 1000 [signatures]...hopefully 500 people aren't mistaken as to their registration address. So we'll find out in a couple (or a few) days as to whether 'Zuma Dogg' officially makes it on the ballot," he wrote. Solomon Wolfson, who used to run a blog that kept an eye on Mayor Villaraigosa, noted that "The absence of a high-profile mayoral contender will allow Zuma Dogg to attract far more media attention than would otherwise be possible." Media attention? Oh yes.
