“I didn’t feel any passion from him,” she said. “I feel like he could give a shit, excuse me, he could care less.”
“A number of people online and off have suggested I run for political office,” Dash, 51, tweeted Friday. “I wanted to see what my online community thinks of this idea as I mull the possibilities. Thoughts? In response to numerous calls for me to run for office, I am considering a run for Congress,” she tweeted. “Would love to know what my fans and friends think.” ~ Stacey Dash
