A 22-year old is running for the New York State Senate. The self-described “Diva” has a LMFAO-themed campaign slogan (in sparkling GIF form), and says she was inspired to get into politics by Legally Blonde.
New York, meet Mindy Meyer.
The Orthodox Jewish law student from Flatbush is running on the Republican and Conservative Party lines against Democratic State Sen. Kevin Parker, and has the most ridiculous campaign website we’ve ever seen. “Mindy Meyer for NYS Senate,” reads a banner across the top of her bright pink site. “I’m Senator and I Know It.”
(Also, “I’m Sexy And I Know It” plays on loop.)
Click on “ISSUES” and underneath a leopard print “Diva of the District” header, Meyer details her stance on everything from issues like Stop-And-Frisk, to Poverty and Unemployment– next to which is a Hunger Games-inspired picture of Meyer as Katniss Everdeen, holding a bow and arrow.
And what may seem like an unserious campaign, however, is garnering the serious support of Meyer’s elders. Jerry Kassar, chairman of Brooklyn’s Conservative Party, stated on Meyer’s site: We endorsed her. We filed her petitions on the conservative party line and we anticipate her being a strong candidate. We were very excited after we met with her and I say she will be formidable and a strong contender. She has a maturity and an ability well beyond her years.
