Something sounds off when you think of mixing Playboy with politics. Last year we heard Holly Madison gunning for a government position in Vegas, and now we're hearing news of her fellow former Girls Next Door star Kendra Wilkinson running for the U.S. Senate. What's more, it looks like she'll have plenty of supporters there.
The Examiner reports that a number of Indianapolis radio stations asked voters about who they wanted to replace Senator Evan Bayh. He recently announced that he won't be seeking a third term in the 2010 midterm elections, so there may be a need for someone new. Who else would be able to fill the void but reality star Kendra Wilkinson? Wait, what?
A grassroots movement has been hoping to see the Girls Next Door model on the ballot for Indiana senator. Her fans have stated that she's a proud resident of the place after all, with a husband who plays for the Indianapolis Colts. While those don't really qualify her, they're a bonus.
But despite the undying hopes of Kendra Wilkinson's fans and admirers, it's doubtful she'll ever be eligible to run for Senate. It's going to need six more years of preparation, since she's too young. The law states that you need to be 30 to run, and we're betting experience plays key here too.
Despite not being able to stick it to politics this year, the Girls Next Door alum still has plans to transform the Senate eventually. PopEater caught up with the 24-year-old mom and she commented strongly on the issue, like a public official would.
"Oh yeah. I would change a lot in this world, let me tell you that," the Kendra star said. She eventually saw this as quite an amusing joke, stating that she really would like to run for the Senate if given the chance.
Perhaps we'll even get to see her campaign for attention on television, as if she wasn't doing that already. But fans of Kendra will certainly back her up, so when 2016 comes they should be ready.
