Levi Johnston running for Mayor of Wasilla, Alaska while filming a reality TV show: Bad Idea.
Loving Levi: The Road to the Mayor’s Office will center on Levi’s newfound fame, which he will trade on to make his run for Wasilla City Hall. While the mayoral chair isn’t up for election until 2012, Levi is looking into running for city council in the meantime, according to Variety.
Levi, who recently split from his on-again fiancée Bristol Palin, admits that the pair looked into ideas for a reality show starring themselves, but “weren’t thrilled with any of the ideas.”
Side Note: Sarah Palin was the Mayor of Wasilla, Alaska from 1996 to 2000.
