You Saw This Coming of the Day: Julian Assange Will Run for Office as a Member of Wikileaks Party

Wikileaks’ larger-than-life founder Julian Assange has officially filed paperwork to run for a seat in the Australian Senate and may actually have a chance at winning. Assange will be running as a member of the country’s new Wikileaks Party while living at the Ecuadorian embassy in London, where he has been hiding for several months to avoid extradition to Sweden. So how’s Assange running for an office from overseas? The Age explains:
"Australian citizens living overseas can enrol to vote as an overseas elector, and consequently run as a Senate candidate if they left Australia within the past three years and intend to return within six years of their date of departure."
