Luther - Rap Veteran 'Luke' Campbell Considering Running For Miami Mayor

Hip-hop veteran LUTHER 'LUKE' CAMPBELL is preparing to swap rap for politics - he's "seriously" considering running for office as a mayor in Miami, Florida.
The former 2 Live Crew member admits he is unsatisfied with the current Miami-Dade mayor, Carlos Alvarez, who has come under fire by local residents for handing out salary increases to his employees while faced with a troubled economy, and is contemplating entering the 2011 race to bring about more "transparency" to local politics.
He says, "If Carlos Alvarez gets recalled, I will seriously think about running for Miami-Dade County mayor."
But Campbell is well aware of the hurdles he will face if he does decide to step up as a mayoral candidate - because the sexual nature of his group's hits in the late 1980s and early '90s is sure to be a topic of contention.
The Me So Horny star adds, "If I decide I will get into politics, I have no problem addressing the many controversies that have been a part of my life. I will have no problem answering questions about the negative side of my life. I look forward to my opponents digging up every wrong thing I have done.”
Campbell isn't the only rapper to pursue political aspirations - Wyclef Jean attempted to run for president of Haiti last year (10) and Rhymefest is currently bidding to become a councilman in his native Chicago, Illinois.
