You can get anything on Craig's List

At least one PA candidate hopes so...

Remember Raj Bhakta? He was the bow tie-wearing, skirt-chasing, cane-wielding, drunk-driving dude from the second season of The Apprentice. While he wasn't the winner on that show, he's hoping to win as the Republican candidate running against U.S. Rep. Allyson Schwartz (D) in Pennsylvania's 13th District.

However, it looks like history's repeating itself for Raj. He had trouble with his team on the popular television show and now he's having trouble with his campaign team.

First his campaign manager left to become director of the southeast regional office for Lynn Swann's bid against Gov. Ed Rendell and now his political director has departed to work as the Bucks County Coordinator for the Republican State Committee.

So what's a poor boy to do?

Advertise for volunteers on Craig's List to "Become Part of Political and Television Documentary History" as a "stellar team of the nation’s best and brightest to become part of a made for television documentary about what a smart, young, dedicated and aggressive campaign team can do."

The listing says that, "The top three performing volunteers will go to Washington with Raj."

I say: Donate to Allyson and help put an end to more bad TV!
