Luther “Uncle Luke” Campbell wants to make sure there’s no doubt about the sincerity of his campaign to be elected mayor of Miami-Dade County, FL. Luke unveiled his campaign slogan, “I’m Dead Serious,” yesterday during an interview on CNN.
The 50-year-old former member of the notoriously raunchy hip-hop group 2 Live Crew is one of eleven candidates running for mayor of the city. “The reason why I’m getting into this race is because Dade county politics is Banana Republican,” he said. “When I look at the other ten candidates, I see that I need to be the person running for mayor to represent my city.”
Luke plans to institute a tax on strippers, legalize possession of small amounts of marijuana, and to fight for health care and housing for the underprivileged.
