Kardashian sex-tape maker considers run for Carson City Council
GOING INTO POLITICS?: Ray-J, the reality-TV star perhaps best known for making a Kim Kardashian sex tape, might be making the transition from entertainment to small-town politics. "I'ma be mayor of Carson," Ray-J told the AllHipHop.com. "Not now. I still got a lot of learning to do. Focusing and a lot of reaching back out to the community, and paying my dues. But in the future, coming around the stretch, you know, I do see myself doing stuff like that." The Daily Breeze's Eric Bradley reports that Carson Mayor Jim Dear welcomed Ray-J: "I might consider him more favorably than some of the current officeholders who are biting at the bit to get into the position."
