Julian Assange to run for Australian Senate

Julian Assange will run for a Senate seat in the 2013 federal election and his mum reckons he’ll be awesome.

Christine Assange confirmed her son’s candidacy on Wednesday after WikiLeaks tweeted the news.

“He will be awesome,” she said.

“In the House of Representatives we get to choose between US lackey party number one and US lackey party number two – between the major parties.

“So it will be great to ‘Assange” the Senate for some Aussie oversight.”

Queensland-born Assange, who founded the secret-leaking website WikiLeaks, announced his Senate ambition last December from Ecuador‘s London embassy.

He sought refuge there last June in a bid to avoid extradition to Sweden.

Mr Assange fears if he goes to Sweden to be questioned over rape allegations, authorities will allow him to be extradited to the US to be questioned over WikiLeaks’ release of thousands of US diplomatic cables.

He said last year he would run as a Senate candidate under a yet-to-be-formed WikiLeaks party banner and was recruiting others to stand with him.

The election will be held on September 14.

One thought on “Julian Assange to run for Australian Senate

  1. This is going to be The Most Fun Election Ever. Jooolya burying herself in her own stupidity, Assange standing for the Senate, all we need now is Humphrey B Bear to challenge Adam Bandt.
