(KGTV) — Sarah Palin got a lot of media attention last week when she announced her candidacy for Alaska's congressional seat.
She joins a field of 50 other candidates which includes Santa Claus.
It's no joke.
Santa Claus, which is his legal name, is a two term councilman and current Mayor Pro Tempore of the city of North Pole, Alaska.
He describes himself as a democratic socialist in the mold of Bernie Sanders.
Prior to changing his name from Thomas O'connor, Claus held a number of jobs including Special Assistant to the Deputy Police Commissioner of New York.
