Meet Pro-Life, He's Running for Governor.

Marvin Richardson, a strawberry farmer, is running for governor of Idaho and he's got the perfect gimmick:

Thus, Marvin Richardson, an Emmett strawberry farmer, has legally changed his middle name to Pro-Life, and then dropped both his first and last names to circumvent laws designed to keep political issues off the ballot itself. “My name being Pro-Life ... will save a number of babies by the time I die,” he tells reporters, adding, “I’m not a nutty kind of person at all.” Pro-Life plans to run for office every two years; in 2008, he will run for the U.S. Senate—unless, of course, his family intervenes. Pro-Life also tells reporters that “my wife, she’s not into calling me Pro-Life yet.”
