His name is Donnie "Dirtwoman" Corker. He is running for Mayor of Richmond, Virginia 2008.
Read this article from Style Weekly, October 10, 2007.
I'm not yet ready to make a comment, but the referenced article does say...
"He (corker) says he believes voters
will look to the future
and not at his past
when they cast their votes
in November 2008."
I can't help but think that he's over estimating the Richmond voters.
