I’m not exactly sure what’s going on over in Jackson, Mississippi, but they’ve got themselves quite an interesting mayoral race going on. After former Jackson Mayor Chokwe Lumumba passed away, one resident who jumped at the opportunity to fill the seat was Gwendolyn Chapman. For some reason, as you’ll see in this video, Gwendolyn occasionally refers to herself as Ward Osbourne Chapman, though it’s not quite clear whether that’s a middle name, a maiden name, or just something to add character. But more importantly, she has a fascinating weed-centric platform that really needs to be seen to fully appreciate. I’m fairly certain that no other political candidate in history has posited solving the after-effects of a nuclear Holocaust with cannabis, but Gwendolyn is indeed a real trailblazer.
And that’s why she’s decided to be a “mayortorial candidate.” Brilliant.
Miss Chapman brings to mind other great political figures in recent history. Move over, Jimmy McMillan: the rent may have been too damn high for your candidacy, but this candidate is simply too damn high, period. And it seems to be working nicely for her.
