By Amy Silverman

A lot of assholes have run for public office in Arizona -- many have even won -- but here's a new one: a real Schmuck.

That's Captain Schmuck to you, apparently. According to his Web site, Frank Schmuck, a Republican, is a Persian Gulf veteran and airline pilot who volunteers for a long list of local charities.

Not sure the last name will be an asset, but hey, stranger things have happened in Arizona politics.
