Original story from June 1

A boot-wearing, pony-loving political satirist who runs for president every four years has filed for Kansas attorney general.

Baltimore native and political performance artist Vermin Supreme filed Friday.

Supreme announced his plans to run for Kansas governor in an interview Thursday. He told

that he wanted to run initially but didn't want to step on the toes of the teenagers campaigning for the job. He said he didn't want to 'split the kids' vote.'

When he realized there were no democratic candidates for attorney general, he raised the funds and boarded a plane for Kansas.

Supreme, who dresses in public as a twisted wizard, has previously campaigned for mandatory dental hygiene and government distribution of free ponies. He has also worked to make people aware of research on the zombie apocalypse.

Supreme is able to run for Kansas attorney general because a bill requiring candidates to have a licence to practice law starts January 1.
