Jello Biafra has been involved with politics since his Dead Kennedys days way back in the 1970s. He ran for mayor of San Francisco in 1979 with a platform that stated that businessman had to wear clown suits within city limits. Despite that goofiness, he came in fourth out of 10 candidates and attracted 3.79 percent of the vote. In 2000 he tried to run for President with the Green party, but Ralph Nader won the nomination. History would have been very different had he managed to take Nader down in the primary. Al Gore would almost certainly have beaten Bush in 2000 without having Nader on the ticket as a spoiler.
