WICHITA, Kansas - Who knew Mickey Mouse was running for office?
But he was top vote-getter among the light-hearted write-in votes cast in last week's municipal elections in Wichita.
The Wichita Eagle reports that other vote getters included rocker Ted Nugent, pop star Lady Gaga, Donald Duck, Smokey the Bear and Jesus Christ.
Some write-in votes were clearly cast in a sign of frustration. "Another Crook" nabbed votes, as did "Anybody Else," "Anybody But Her" and the always popular "None of the Above."
