Frank Rizzo Becomes Democrat, Probably Running for Mayor

The son, relax!

Former City Councilman (and now former Republican and former Independent and former Frank Rizzo, Jr.) Frank Rizzo is switching his party affiliation to Democrat. According to the Daily News, Rizzo fils will announce whether he’s actually running for Mayor “after the holidays.” This news broke Friday, but I waited until today to say anything because these days long-shot white guys are entering/withdrawing from the mayor’s race faster than we can keep track.

Oh, look, there he is with Bob Brady signing the paperwork.
