Joe The Plumber Goes To Congress

... or at least might run for Congress.
The filing for "Joe for Congress 2012" was just submitted on Friday, and the scanned file does not yet appear on the FEC's site, and went without notice, to my knowledge, until a couple of hours ago.

The statement of candidacy isn't online yet, but it lists Wurzelbacher in Ohio's Ninth District, which has been held by Democrat Marcia Kaptur since 1983. Wurzelbacher floated the idea he might challenge Kaptur in 2010, and there have been rumors recently that he might consider a run.
To paraphrase everyone, everywhere... "WHAAAAAA?" or perhaps "WHYYYYYY?"

Still, this should get interesting.
