New York (CNN) - One of the street vendors who alerted police to a smoking vehicle in Times Square that was later found to be carrying explosives says he's planning to run for Congress.
Duane Jackson, a registered Democrat and Vietnam veteran, told CNN Wednesday he plans to face off against Republican Representative Nan Hayworth in New York's 19th district in the November election.
EXCELLENT!! Another Democrat already experienced in the uses of smoke! Just got to teach him about mirrors and he's good to go. You'll be out there growing the government teet in no time. Stop by and we'll load you up with some walkin' around food stamps.
@obama snake oil
I hope all Rethugs get voted out next time. This man is a hard working American Vet. Shame on you!
He will do better job than current representative
I'll vote for him. Good luck!!
Good for him...I'll be voting for him in my district because Nan Hayworth is wothless here.
Oh no! I give him props for alerting the police and serving this country, but that doesn't make you qualified for Congress. We already have a bunch of unqualified TEAtards in the House already. This almost reminds of that joke of a candidate from South Carolina who was running against Sen. Demented.
By the way snake oil...you don't live here so shut your pie hole. :)
Snake – Love your stupid posts. You are one of the reasons that the republican party is in the crapper.
AZ Ken is so cute, an unreconstructed doper, he still thinks using the term "rethugs" is cute. Does he not realize he is reading a CNN Political Ticker story where all things are slanted favorably to Obama, the unions and the dope heads and welfare frauds and against the working taxpayers and Repblicans.
get rid of all these Congressional Republican thugs from the Capital Hill, Nation gains....god bless the USA/Obama2012.
Congratulations! We need more heroes like you representing our needs! Good luck!
az ken - This man is a hard working American Vet
I know he is! And I want to put him to work even more in my show. He just needs to bone up on how to give half the people everything while picking the pockets of the other half. Throw in some "pay your fair share" and wallah, you got a great candidate!
Weird – just keep digging in that huge pile of republican crap for the pony you think you will find.
Oh bigotry, oh bigotry, how ugly are the wingnuts.
Sure, another vendor, thats what Mayor John F. Street was and now Philadelphia, PA is a cesspool of poverty. Hey, if you take a lowland gorilla out of the grass, dress him up in a tuxedo and stuff a million bucks in his pocket, you don't get a wealthy socialite, you get a rich ape in a tuxedo. I think we had and still do have enough incompetence in politics already. Buy his hot dogs and keep the current Rep in office.
OK, so has anybody done a background check on this guy??? Those are KIDS he's playing up to!!
Hey snake, those lines have failed your GOBP deathcult over the last decade (wealth was redistributed upwards, in case you didn't notice) so by all means, keep repeating them.
A Dem voter
Lot of ignorant hateful right wing nut cases on this page. BIGOTS!!
