Today is Election Day, and while there are plenty of bottom feeders on the ballots, a different kind of bottom feeder, a 20-pound carp, is waging a write-in campaign for an Ann Arbor, Mich., city council seat. That’s right, a 20-pound carp.
Last November workers from Ann Arbor’s Natural Areas Preservation program determined that a 20-pound carp was destroying the vegetation in a local pond and relocated it to the nearby Huron River. This story posted on MLive says the carp has now started a Twitter account (@TwentyPoundCarp), announcing it is running for office, and following that up with a string of campaign messages.
