‘Monty Burns’ For Mayor Of NYC

NEW YORK (Wireless Flash - FlashNews) – Montgomery Burns wants to bring real change to the Big Apple, even if he’s not a real person.

The cartoon millionaire from The Simpsons is running for mayor of New York City against current moneybags mayor Mike Bloomberg in a mock campaign created by artists Kenny Komer and Boris Rasin.

Komer says pitting the two titans against each other for the mayoral seat is merely a “joke” because Bloomberg’s big bucks makes the campaign completely unfair.

He adds, “We’re running a satirical campaign to emphasize the ridiculous nature of Bloomberg’s campaign. With the amount of money he has there’s no real competition.”

Still, Komer hopes that Mr. Burns’ campaign platform will get voters to write-in the cartoon’s name on the ballot come November 3.

Monty promises to build city revenue by selling Staten Island and create green energy by building a power plant in Williamsburg, which would also eliminate “pesky hipsters.”
