Zirkle enters race for Congress

Republican ran two years ago on platform of guillotine, drafting deadbeat dads.


South Bend Tribune Staff Report 

SOUTH BEND — Attorney Tony Zirkle said Wednesday he will seek the Republican nomination for the Congressional seat now occupied by Rep. Joe Donnelly. Zirkle ran for that seat in 2006, but lost in the primary to incumbent Chris Chocola, R-Bristol.

Donnelly, D-Granger, beat Chocola in the general election later that year.

Zirkle’s campaign gained attention when he proposed using the guillotine to punish sexual predators. He also shredded an original 1953 copy of Playboy Magazine featuring Marilyn Monroe, and recommended drafting deadbeat dads to patrol U.S. borders.
