SNL’s Victoria Jackson Loses Tea Party Bid
Victoria Jackson has thus far been less successful in politics than her fellow SNL alum Al Franken.
The Nashville Tennessean (“‘SNL’s Victoria Jackson falls to incumbents”):
Victoria Jackson, the former “Saturday Night Live” cast member who has made a name for herself as an active tea party participant, conservative activist and outspoken opponent of President Barack Obama, has lost her bid to win a spot on the Williamson County Commission.
Jackson received 632 votes, losing out to Judy Lynch Herbert, with 1,422 votes, and Betsy Hester, with 1,380 votes.
I somehow missed that Jackson was a Tea Party activist, much less running for minor elective office. A distant third is a rather poor finish for a minor national celebrity in such a low-level race.
