When Chris Lytle announced that he would be retiring after his submission win over Dan Hardy at UFC Live: Hardy vs. Lytle on August 14, he made mention that a future in politics was something that might be in the cards for him. Apparently the longtime Indianapolis firefighter was serious about the aspiration as he announced during a press conference earlier today that he will indeed be running for a seat in Indiana’s House of Representatives for District 28.

“Lights Out” posted the following on’s¬†Underground forum:

“I’ve decided that I can no longer let our government run with the same attitude that it has been for years. Our politicans worry about themselves more than the people they represent. That needs to change. Therefore, I’m running for state senate in Indiana.
I know times are tough, but I would greatly appreciate campaign donations through my website,” Lytle wrote.¬†”I don’t care if it’s $10, $20, or $50. It all helps. I’m running against someone who has been in there for 23 years and is well funded. Once again thanks and please watch how I start fighting in a new way.”

Elections to the United States Senate are scheduled for November 6, 2012. If Lytle’s bid for a Senate seat is successful, he will serve a six-year term from January 3, 2013 until January 3, 2019.

Shit, my fault PurplePickle... I didn't bother actually reading what they wrote. Didn't notice them referencing the Indiana House of Reps, the US Senate, and of course, the title. Cunt fucks is right!

@ PurplePickle - as much as I enjoyed your sentiments, I think the answer to your question was in the title. Damn tricky fucking Canadians, putting it in the last place you'd think to look.

Shit, if I contributed to Karma's cause, I might as well contribute to Lytle's. I'll definitely send him some money. It would be pretty cool to see him elected.

So what the fuck is he running for? State senate, state house, US Senate? This post is full of fuck. Canadian fuck from the looks of it.

Cunt fucks.

75% of all statistics are made up on the spot.

so much for him spending time with his kids.

90% of the people who wins elections are the one who raise the most money in campaigns....

Chris is a great guy - I just wish he wasn't naive enough to think running for political office would help him serve people.
I really hope politics doesn't corrupt him. Politics is the ugliest game there is. If you don't get any financial backing you will never amount to anything. If you do get a lot of financial backing, you become a servant of the interests that employ you/fund you. Then you spend the rest of your political career smiling at people, pretending to serve their interests while secretly working for the people that fund your career.
Successful politicians are usually complete sewer roaches.

I wonder if his new way of fighting will end up taking as much time away from his kids and family as the old way. That would be ironic, wouldn't it?
And jaijai?! Those proceeds better be going to Lytle's campaign, damnit!
