Thursday evening, Mitt Romney added to his impressive array of celebrity supporters — Gene Simmons, Donald Trump, Jenna Jameson, Lindsay Lohan and Stacey Dash — with a man you probably haven’t thought about since Mitt was pretending to be pro-choice: Meatloaf.
The appearance culminated with a nearly retching Mr. Loaf performing “America, The Beautiful” and forcing Mitt Romney to escape to the other side of the stage. Watch:
Apparently, Romney is so desperate for some celebrity support that he may be campaigning with a guy who isn’t even legally registered to vote.
Loaf’s real name is Michael Lee Aday. According to The Smoking Gun, Aday may be trying to register to vote in a residence he no longer owns or resides in:
Texas resident Aday is not registered to vote in the red state. On October 23, two days before appearing onstage with Romney, the singer sought a mail-in ballot from California for the November 6 election. Aday remains registered to vote from an L.A. county home he sold in May 2011.
Of course, when it comes to Republican voter registration fraud, this is just small (meatloaf and) potatoes. But it’s a great reminder to publicists of fading stars that Mitt Romney is willing to take anyone right now.
