Update: Carlos Allen's mayoral bid in jeopardy, NPR seeks Helen Thomas seat at White House
Carlos Allen (Bill O'Leary/The Washington Post)
Carlos Allen's quixotic campaign for D.C. mayor is in jeopardy. The man best known as the White House state-dinner crasher not named Salahi filed his petitions to qualify for the September primary ballot, but their validity has been challenged by a supporter of fellow long-shot candidate Leo Alexander. Allen told us he submitted about 2,080 signatures (2,000 are required), which doesn't leave a lot of room for error, but he told us that if rejected, he'll stay in as a write-in. Then he tested out his new slogan on us: "The crasher's coming!"
The slugfest over who will get Helen Thomas's front-row briefing-room seat just got more crowded: NPR has submitted an application to the White House Correspondents' Association, reports Yahoo News, putting NPR in contention with Bloomberg and Fox.
