Basil Marceaux Picture and Bio (Videos)

Basil Marceaux is a man running for Tennessee governor. He isn't your typical candidate, however -- when he was on a local news channel talking about his platform his ideas for bettering the state included plans to "remove all gold fringe flags from the state," "stop traffic stops," and "plant grass or vegetation across the state."

Basil Marceaux: Future Tennessee governor? (
He's quite a character, and we're not exactly sure if he's seriously misguided and serious about running, or just trying to make some sort of statement, or what. His website claims he will (via “VOTE FOR ME AND IF I WIN I WILL IMMUNE YOU FROM ALL STATE CRIMES FOR THE REST OF YOU LIFE!”

Also on his web site is a list of the 7 people and organizations he's sued (including someone for "promoting slavery at traffic stops"), along with his platform (which includes "a free gift program" under "Equal Health Care."), and a list of his hobbies (including art, reading, martial arts,and survival training).

Oh boy.
