Daily Caller: Johnston won’t run for mayor of Wasilla
Question of the Day
Levi Johnston won’t run for mayor of Wasilla
The Playgirl model, whose memoir, “Deer in the Headlights: My Life in Sarah Palin’s Crosshairs,” hits bookstores next month, won’t seek political office because, he said, he would rather not turn something serious into a “joke.”
Mr. Johnston also needs to bone up on the demands of running a city.
“He’s not going to run right now because there are a lot of issues that he would need to study up on and he thinks that this isn’t the right time for him to be mayor now,” Mr. Jones said.
The 21-year-old is staying occupied and “focusing on his book that is coming out Sept. 20.”
Over the summer, Mr. Johnston announced that he would be running for mayor of Wasilla. His aspiration was short-lived — a September Public Policy Polling poll found that Mr. Johnston was the least popular person in his state.
“Although we are reluctant to respond to these types of press reports, the rumors circulating about our relationship are completely false,” the Smiths told Us Weekly. “We are still together, and our marriage is intact.”
In Touch Weekly reported Tuesday that the celebrity couple, known for being a stable Hollywood pair, had decided to split.
TMZ later contacted Miss Pinkett Smith’s representative, who claimed to know nothing about the supposed divorce.
“What? In Touch said that? I know nothing about this. … Lord. I’m going back to bed,” the representative told the celebrity news site.
