Harris campaign for mayor -- a hoax?

Posted By on Wed, Mar 4, 2009 at 10:46 AM

Heh. Don't know what to make of this, but Franco Harris' wikipedia entry currently asserts that "Harris' son F. Dok Harris is about to announce he will be running for mayor of Pittsburgh." That remark was added yesterday, as near as I can tell. 

Franco himself has long been active in Democratic Party activities, and I know people who have long hoped he would run for something. But I'm guessing "hoax."  A slightly earlier version of the wikipedia page includes this information:

"Additionally, Dok does not always brush his teeth before leaving the house."

A check of "Forge Ahead," the alleged campaign Web site of "Harris for Pittsburgh," says only "Sorry, but you are looking for something that isn't here."

I guess we'll soon know whether that's true or not. But I wouldn't click on the "donate" button quite yet.
