Real World star–turned–activist Kevin Powell is running, again, for Congress in Brooklyn’s 10th Congressional District agaisnt Representative Ed Towns.
Towns fended off a challenge from Powell in 2008, and didn’t even come close to winning, but it was fun to cover.
Powell had some famous friends. Towns had some powerful and political friends. Powell basically called Towns a lazy congressman. Towns called Powell immature and in need of anger management treatment,
Powell’s spokeswoman said he’s been hosting a few events quietly, but is gearing up for a more public event.
The official kick-off is on April 26, I’m told.
