Prince Mongo is a No Go for Mayor

Sorry, all you Prince Mongo (nee Robert Hodges) fans, your guy is out of the race for Memphis mayor.

The man who claims to be a 333-year-old-alien from the planet Zambodia has been booted off the mayoral ballot, along with City Council candidate Jesse Neely and City Court Clerk candidate Jeff Shields, thanks to unpaid fines to the state.

They really shouldn't be surprised, though. It's not like you can succeed in politics in this town if you break the law ... oh, never mind.

Since that's really all there is to say about this topic, how about you read Mongo's Wikipedia entry. Man, he does the city proud!
