What Colorado Needs Now Is Gov. “Shotgun Willie’s”

FOX 31's Eli Stokols reports:

Mike Dunafon, 59, the Libertarian mayor of Glendale whose fiancee owns Shotgun Willie’s, is promising on his website to petition onto the gubernatorial ballot this fall if he can get more than 60,000 “likes” on his Facebook page by April 6, his 60th birthday.

Should he do so, he’s promising to run as an “unaffiliated, independent, standalone candidate.”

He’s just over 18,000 likes at the moment.

“I will rely on our communication on Facebook, Twitter and all the social media to change the face of politics on the planet, not just Colorado and the United States,” Dunafon says in the video outlining his “60 for 60″ challenge. [Pols emphasis]

More from Glendale Mayor Mike Dunafon's website:

Mike is attempting to start a political revolution, or as he puts it “An American Spring,” by showing that a regular independent citizen, who refuses to take money from anyone, can win a major political office using social media to unleash the power of the ideas of liberty, independence and individual rights to overcome the overwhelming big money advantages enjoyed by the political parties and incumbent candidates.

60 for 60! On April 6, 2014, Mike will be 60 years old and has promised that if his FaceBook Fan page has 60,000+ Likes by his 60th birthday, that he will run for Governor of Colorado in the November General Election as an Independent, stand-alone candidate.

So if you agree that we need to get the money out of politics, and that we need more liberty and less government surveillance and control, and that politicians should only be beholden to voters rather than corporate sponsors, then ‘LIKE’ his Facebook page and join us in spreading the word about Mike to folks in your area, as we change the face of American politics.

Here's a link to Dunafon's Facebook page, if you're inclined to join the revolution! We wouldn't be a bit surprised if he crushes the 60,000 Facebook "likes" he's set a goal for, and actually mounts a third-party bid for Governor of Colorado America the entire planet. Given the lackluster field of Republican candidates to challenge incumbent Gov. John Hickenlooper, we could honestly see Mayor Dunafon pulling a fair number of votes–either as a Libertarian or an unaffiliated candidate. Think Jesse Ventura with a more…appealing entourage.

    Uh, thanks for the photo illustration accompanying this diary.  Of course, now my wife won't believe me when I tell her I only read CPols for the articles.

      Actually, I never even noticed that picture . . . until I just read your comment.

      Saaaaay . . . isn't that one of Ted Nugent's more recent wives??????????

    Hell, yes!
    Let the fun begin.

    The man is a total loony, would be a complete disaster for this state, and is wholly unprepared to be Governor. 

    I support his getting in the race 100% wink

  4. hawkeye says:

    A whole Democrat establishment will "like" the idea of a Libertarian candidate for governor … Hick's second term will be slam dunk and he can then spend his time (and excess money) supporting other Dem campaigns.

    That poor girl is going to have terrible back problems later in life.

    Been to Willie's – it's a dump. Haven't seen the remodeled version though.

    It heavily favors the Republicans, and should be avoided at all costs.

    I thought you liberals were against the exploitation of women? Nice "gratuitous" photo…

    • BlueCatBlueCat says:

      You think a lot of things about liberals even though you clearly don't even know what liberal means or who the liberals are.

    • Curmudgeon says:

      Tell you what, Moddy…if the image of a grown woman doing something of her own free will bothers you so much, maybe you could go sit somewhere quiet, for a while…like an airport bathroom stall.  And take a wide stance

    There has got to be an independent candidate better than this joke-off. But, if he gets on the ballot, he'll take some gunzo votes away from Gessler or Tancredo, so I'm all for it. He definitely won't get many female voters, with his Shotgun Willie's schtick. 

    Can someone enlighten me as to why mostly naked women getting ready to shoot machine guns is considered sexy? Cause it's definitely not practical. Based on his Facebook page, he'll definitely get a certain immature male demographic voting for him.
