It’s been 17 years since Bernard Goetz made headlines by gunning down four black teens in a New York City subway car. Now, he’s gunning for Rudy Giuliani’s job. Goetz is mounting a small-scale campaign for mayor, hoping to win based on his high name-recognition and a call for vegetarian-only eating in city-funded facilities. According to the Washington Times, he is on the record saying that if he had not been eating meat at the time of the subway incident, he would not have been mugged (“vegetarians have good karma“).
