Wake the F--- Up Minneapolis Mayoral Candidate Wants Anthony Weiner's Job?

BY Micah L. Sifry | Friday, September 13 2013

It's a crowded field running for the Democratic-Farmer-Labor party nomination for mayor of Minneapolis, so this new YouTube video by candidate Jeffrey Alan Wagner is suddenly getting him plenty of attention, with plenty of news sites touting it as one of the best political ads of the year:

He says he won't take money from developers, that he'll be ok only making $100,000 a year, that "I won't go to the strip clubs any more," and ends with "Wake the F--- Up!"

Wagner isn't likely to become Minneapolis' next mayor, but I bet this video is going to help his acting career.

Here he appears as "Uncle Wags," a video DJ (returning to the air after a period "on probation"):

Wagner also appears as "Uncle Penis" in some episodes. Is he jockeying for Anthony Weiner's job?
