    Elvis impersonator wins a council seat in Spain (includes picture and video)

    An Elvis impersonator has been elected as councillor in the local elections in the town of Reus near Barcelona for the independent CORI party.

    Ariel Santamaría, a former postman, based his election campaign around a series of concerts across the town, but his manifesto is of particular note...

    He proposed that marihuana be planted in all green areas across the town and also that the Guardia Urbana carry a GPS satellite system at all times so they can find people who forget their lighters so they can he given a light for their spiff.

    He also said the Town Hall should be painted pink, and the town square be converted into a swimming pool for nudists.

    Sñr Santamaría also believes in new technology with a web page, and his press secretary has been attending to the press demands dressed as a pirate, eye patch included.

    He obtained more than 1,800 votes to be elected as councillor.
  2. OK, as long as I can have a New Favorite Press Secretary.
