This one should really be filed under “bizzare” but hey… Elections will usually lure out a share of attention seeking loonies and this time around it’s no different. Case in point being Ladislav “The Singing Major” Troha who announced his bid today. But the one who actually grabbed headlines was Fani Eršte. Media described her as “an no-name candidate” whose platform consists of tackling issues of Roma population, welfare, social inequality, health and foreign nationals.

However, among Ljoobljanchans Fani is anything but an unknown quantity. A homeless person, she is a permanent fixture of many a crowded place and subject of many legends. Among other things she is said to have had her own late night radio show years ago but also to have been forbidden entry into every casino in the city because she always won. I don’t know how much of this is true. Probably not even a little. But I do know something.
Some years ago, while yours truly was still DJing chez Cutty Sark, Fani grabbed my butt.
How’s that for my claim to stardom?
