Darth Vader to run for mayor

  • A candidate named Darth Vader is reportedly running for mayor in Odessa and Kiev and Bloomberg reports that his videos have been popular in the Ukraine. 

    "I alone can make an empire out of a republic, restore glories, return lost territories and pride in this country," he said.

    Media reports that the candidate changed his name from Viktor Shevchenko earlier this year and has previously been unsuccessful at running for president due to his paperwork.
