Disbarred, disgraced, and apparently delusional former Maricopa County Attorney Andrew Thomas claims he's actually running for governor.
Hold on to your asses, readers, because you're about to laugh it right off. Fox 10 got a copy of Thomas' e-mail announcement to media, in which Thomas says he's "confident public surveys will show upon my filing that I am a leading candidate for Governor."

Thomas is delusional if he thinks he could beat Clifford the Big Red Dog in a race for governor, and the thought of him as governor makes Governor Glug-Glug's desire for an unconstitutional third term sound almost reasonable.
"Candy" Andy's still talking about some grand conspiracy involved in the three-member disciplinary panel of the Arizona State Supreme Court agreeing that Thomas abused his power, and decided on his disbarment, but governor's apparently the next step.
Thomas claims he's filing his papers to run for governor today, but the Secretary of State's website is showing nothing from him at the time of this post.
