Levi Johnston is planning to follow in Sarah Palin's footsteps with a run for mayor—or city council member—of Wasilla. Johnston's manager, Tank Jones, confirmed to AP that the 20-year-old babydaddy will be entering politics as part of a reality show that is being pitched to networks. The project's working title is Loving Levi: The Road to the Mayor’s Office, according to Variety.

Jones insists the project is not a spoof, and says Johnston wants to change things in his hometown. "People questioned Jesus Christ, so I definitely don't care about these mere mortals questioning Levi Johnston," Jones said. "He's going to keep on doing his thing. He was going to do this, even if this wasn't a reality show." (Read more Tank Jones stories.)
