Looks like someone is still Clueless! Stacey Dash, mostly known for her role on Clueless, now known for saying get rid of BET Network and Black History Month, is now running for Congress in California.
Via USA Today
The actress, best known for her role as Dionne in Clueless, filed paperwork on Monday to create a campaign committee for a run in California's 44th congressional district. The district in Southern California has been in Democratic hands since redistricting back in 2012.
It's a long road from Washington, though. Dash still needs to submit paperwork to get on the primary ballot, according to the Los Angeles Times. And then she'd have to be one of the top two candidates in the primary to make it to the November midterm election (thanks, jungle primary system).
The districts she would be representing include Compton, Watts, San Pedro and North Long Beach. Which means, if you don't want Stacey Dash representing your home town... YOU NEED TO VOTE this November!
With the news of Dash's intent to run, Black Twitter quickly reacted and it was HILARIOUS! Check it out below.
