You can always tell when a politician is lying by whether their lips are moving. Those dirty bastards will say anything to get your vote.

Luckily, Uncle Luke is not a politician. (At least, we hope not). He is running for Miami-Dade County mayor, though. And he's using the same tactics that got him fame in the music business to try and get you out to the polls.

That means a campaign strategy full of club appearances that will see him promote his tax-a-ho plan that the media loves, but strippers hate.

Check the cut to find out where he'll be this week.

Tonight Uncle Luke hosts a party at Club Play on South Beach, 'cause ... Hey, nighttime freaks are daytime voters.

Tomorrow night, he'll be at Grand Central for an adults and professionals night out with an "old-school music DJ," and a 25-and-up age requirement, and an enforced dress code. Personally, we hate adults and professionals. But maybe they vote too.

Then this Sunday, Luke will be at SoBe Live for a spring break party that will likely be attended by 90% out of towners. We're guessing he's just doing this one for the money. Maybe he is a politician after all.
