Former Pro Wrestler Running for Florida House Seat

He's not running from South Beach or Wilton Manors (where he could probably win on that photo alone), but from somewhere in Hillsborough County, where he was a one-term commissioner. 

Blair is a former professional wrestler who fought on a tag team called the Killer Bees (named for the Miami Dolphins' Killer B defense) in the WWF in the mid-'80s. His uniform consisted of black-and-yellow striped briefs. 

Those are actually the good(?) things about him. The bad things are that he hates gay people so, so much and that he was arrested this summer for allegedly beating his children. The police report says he punched and choked his 17-year-old son and that his 12-year-old son also showed signs of some sort of physical confrontation. The charges were later dropped. Coincidently, the prosecutor who dropped the charges had served as a campaign host for Blair a year ago

Needless to say, he's a Republican, and he plans on announcing his candidacy for a state House seat on Monday
