Levi Johnston to Run for Mayor of Wasilla

Levi Johnston is pitching a reality show to television networks in which he will run for mayor of Wasilla, Alaska, a position that Sarah Palin held from 1996-2002!

Loving Levi: The Road to the Mayor’s Office will center on Levi‘s newfound fame, which he will trade on to make his run for Wasilla City Hall. While the mayoral chair isn’t up for election until 2012, Levi is looking into running for city council in the meantime, according to Variety.

Levi, who recently split from his on-again fiancee Bristol Palin, admits that the pair looked into ideas for a reality show starring themselves, but “weren’t thrilled with any of the ideas.”

Bristol Palin Breaks Up with Levi Johnston

Bristol Palin and Levi Johnston have broken off their engagement after announcing their intention to marry just three weeks ago.

“It’s over,” Bristol, 19, told People. “I broke up with him.”

Bristol said that the relationship took a turn for the worse on July 14, the same day they announced their engagement to Us Weekly.

Levi reportedly told Bristol he may have fathered another baby with another teenager – the report has since been refuted.

“The final straw was him flying to Hollywood for what he told me was to see some hunting show but come to find out it was that music video mocking my family,” Bristol said. “He’s just obsessed with the limelight and I got played.”
