Mystery Monkey is bananas for the Tampa mayor seat

Mystery Monkey is bananas for the Tampa mayor seat

Tampa, FL -- He's fed up and he's ready for a change. Tampa Bay's favorite elusive monkey announced on his website yesterday that he is running for mayor.

"The tax-paying citizens of Tampa have been driven bananas by the out-of-touch political establishment and want someone who will fight for them. I am the candidate voters will choose to navigate Tampa safely through this jungle of uncertainty," the Mystery Monkey said via his website.

The Mystery Monkey of Tampa Bay is campaigning through Twitter and Facebook.
