Slipknot’s Clown Nominated For Iowa Governor
Of course, he’s not serious. Or is he? Either way, Slipkknot’s beer keg basher, Shawn Crahan (better known among the band’s fan base as Clown) has been nominated to run for governor of his home state of Iowa by weekly newspaper Cityview. Even though Crahan insists that he has no intention of running in November, he did tell the British rock magazine Kerrang!, “I swear that one day, I'll run for mayor [of Des Moines]. I want to bring people together. If I wanted to get a little more twisted or worldly, in a crazy way, politics would be it.” But for now the unwilling nominee is preparing for the release of the self-titled debut album by his side project Dirty Little Rabbits.
