Even If He Wins, Einstein Can't Hold Office In Oakland, Calif.

AUDIE CORNISH, HOST:

Good morning. I'm Audie Cornish. Residents of Oakland, California have a new mayoral candidate to choose from today and according to his webpage, Einstein loves to run and promises to quote, "be a very good mayor."

That's because he's quote, "a very good dog," actually, a shepherd mix nominated by members of the Occupy Oakland movement advocating for changes in City Hall. Sadly for Einstein, he doesn't have a dog's chance of winning; canines can't hold public office in Oakland.

It's MORNING EDITION. Transcript provided by NPR, Copyright NPR.
