The Naked Cowboy Running For Mayor Of New York City
A man who makes his living posing for pictures with tourists as The Naked Cowboy in New York City’s Times Square plans to run for city mayor, FOX 5 New York reports.
Robert Burck, who has made a career of playing a guitar dressed only in cowboy boots, hat, and tighty-whiteys wants to replace incumbent Michael Bloomberg, who appears to be sailing toward re-election for a third term in the election this November.
Burck is promising new ideas on tax breaks, tourism, gay marriage, public transport, and homeland security.
“No one knows how to do more with less than yours truly, and that’s the kind of thinking I plan on sharing with my fellow New Yorkers when you elect me,” he said in a statement announcing a news conference to launch his candidacy on Wednesday.
