Stacey Dash has officially filed paperwork to run for Congress in California’s 44th District, which is currently represented by Democrat Nanette Barragán. The district includes Compton, Watts, San Pedro and North Long Beach, and has long been represented by Democrats.
Actress Stacey Dash announced yesterday via Twitter that she has been receiving encouragement to run for public office. Dash tweeted Friday that “a number of people” suggested that she pursue a run for Congress. She asked her followers for their opinions on a potential run for office.
“A number of people online and off have suggested I run for political office. I wanted to see what my online community thinks of this idea as I mull the possibilities. Thoughts?” Dash tweeted. There was also a picture with the tweet that said: “paid for by the D2DC ‘Testing the Waters’ committee.”
The “Clueless” actress posted a follow-up tweet Saturday morning apparently pleased with the feedback and will consider running. “In response to numerous calls for me to run for office, I am considering a run for Congress. Would love to know what my fans and friends think,” she tweeted.
The actress currently lives in California. Dash was fired from her position as a contributor at Fox News after she cursed on-air while commenting on former President Obama’s attitude towards fighting terror.
“I didn’t feel any passion from him,” she said. “I feel like he could give a sh*t, excuse me, he could care less.”
