Actress and conservative activist Stacey Dash is running for Congress as a Republican candidate in California's 44th district to replace Rep. Nanette Barragan (D). Federal Election Commission documents prove it.
Dash became famous for her hilarious role as Dionne in "Clueless" in 1995, where she played the best friend of Alicia Silverstone's Cher. Years later, she burst into the conservative movement, speaking out against President Obama's policies. She worked as a Fox News contributor from 2013 to 2016.
In a sit down interview with Townhall in 2016 about her new book "There Goes My Social Life: From Clueless to Conservative," Ms. Dash explained how she had been ostracized by Hollywood for her conservative ideology. She seemed to have no regrets.
Earlier this month, Dash asked for her supporters' thoughts on whether she should pursue a political career.
A number of people online and off have suggested I run for political office. I wanted to see what my online community thinks of this idea as I mull the possibilities. Thoughts? pic.twitter.com/L71fF0NnXR— Stacey Dash (@REALStaceyDash) February 9, 2018
