Influential Ohio Democrats are pushing former Cincinnati mayor and daytime-TV host Jerry Springer to run for Ohio governor in 2018, more than half a dozen Democrats familiar with the race told Business Insider.

Many said Springer, who sought the Democratic nomination for governor of Ohio in 1982 and remains active in state politics, could be a good fit for the current political climate.

30 years ago what he does would get him shamed out of office (and polite society)

Now it is a resume enhancement in democrat circles.

He’s been politicking for years and previously looked at a Senste run.

He’s held office before as a whoremongering mayor.

Sadly, that is probably true. Our system has turned into an effing joke. How else do you explain Al Franken?

I don’t know much at all about Springer as a politician, and maybe that’s not fair, but he will forever be known as a TV trash peddler. I don’t think people could take him seriously as a governor.

He was mayor.

He got out of politics because he wrote a check to a prostitute instead of paying cash.

Cincinnati was a VERY NICE CONSERVATIVE city UNTIL the DEMOCRAT DOPES elected him to be Mayor......it’s been downhill ever since.

Why not? Al Franken won. They can steal some votes to get Springer a win.

His bio says he was born in a Tube Staton in London, so he’s a Brit and ineligible to be President.

We have been wanting "None of the Above" for sometime. Ergo, Perot, Jesse Ventura, Ahhhhnold, and eventually Donald Trump, now President Trump. At least President Trump is someone who has been their and done that in Business. I can't think of another Titan like him that is a household name and a Business Rock Star, maybe Ford's former CEO / Turn-around once in a lifetime business story of the Century and that would be Alan Mulally.

All the other names being bandied about are bush-leaguer's IMHO, "The Rock", Zuckerburg, Mark Cuban? Please.....

Springer is fully qualified in Dem circles and will be endorsed by RINO Kaisich.

Does he have any qualifications?

And, by that, I mean has he appeared in a large diaper?

Sad, but true!
