Disgusted by the unchecked leftist politics in California and the corrupting influence of Hollywood, actress and conservative commentator Stacey Dash has decided enough is enough and has filed the necessary paperwork to officially run for a congressional seat in the state.
The “Clueless” star filed campaign documents with the Federal Election Commission under the slogan “Dash to DC” that show she will run as a Republican in California’s 44th Congressional District. Rep. Nanette Barragan (D-Calif.) currently represents the district.
The congressional district contains the cities of Compton, Watts, San Pedro and North Long Beach, and has been represented by a Democrat since the 2012 election.
Dash earlier this month hinted that she was mulling a congressional campaign, and took to Twitter to seek feedback from her followers.
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

Dash, an outspoken conservative, worked as a contributor at Fox News for roughly three years, but her contract was not renewed in late 2016 after she cursed on air while commenting on former President Obama’s attitude toward fighting terror.
“I didn’t feel any passion from him,” she said during a segment. “I feel like he could give a shit, excuse me, he could care less.”
Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton won the district by an overwhelming margin, 83-12 percent, during the 2016 presidential race, according to CNN.
In 2016, Dash launched an initiative called Dash America with the intention of energizing and empowering conservatives to take back influence in leftist-dominated Los Angeles.
“I believe that instead of allowing others to divide us and hold us down, we must empower one another to rise up and unite for the sake of our great nation and the values that have made us the strongest country in the world, a true beacon of freedom for all people and all nations under God for centuries,” Dash said at the time.
The actress published a memoir in 2016 entitled There Goes My Social Life: From Clueless to Conservative, in which she discussed her conservative political views.
