“My political goals are not about me, not about publicity, but about serving the hard-working people of Virginia who deserve a representative who actually represents them, their values, their concerns and their needs,” reality TV personality Tareq Salahi assured voters in a campaign blast urging them to write him in — the “not so bad after all” alternative — for the upcoming governor’s race in Virginia.

Failing that, the infamous White House party crasher appears inclined to run for Congress next fall.

    A simple search on Google will reveal Salahi’s charity and business frauds, his over litigious nature, his history of threatening people, purchasing services with his credit card and then reversing charge illegitimately, and stiffing vendors for his bankrupt polo organization. To give the appearance of living the high life he and his wife drained his parents’ life work like an ATM machine purchasing and Astin Martin sports car (repossessed), a boat (repossessed), and a $224,000 sky box at the Redskin’s Stadium. He even dragged his mother, who was caring for his dying father, through court trying take control of the family winery. His ex had to flee in the middle of the night she was so afraid of him. Sounds like he would fit right in in congress!
