It seems that the recall election in California is becoming crowded, according to The Daily Wire.
Randy Quaid released the statement, “I’m seriously considering running for governor.”
“The prosecutorial corruption in California (esp Santa Barbara & the Bell scandal) is rampant; and I promise that if elected I will clean up the District Attorney Offices throughout the state.”

Quaid “has not officially launched a campaign” Fox News reported.
Allegedly Quaid has had some legal issues.
In the past, Quaid and his wife were arrested for burglary.
“At issue in Randy Quaid’s hearing was whether he should be released on conditions or reduced bail, and also whether a California judge ever found probable cause to support charges against the couple.”
“Judge Arms ruled there is no probable cause to charge Randy Quaid with vandalism or trespassing in California. She later made the same determination for Evi Quaid.”
From The Daily Wire:
As noted by Fox News, Quaid “has not officially launched a campaign” and will certainly have an uphill battle to climb given his string of legal troubles over the past decade. In 2010, for instance, he and his wife, Evi, were both arrested for burglary after occupying a guest house at their former property for five days, claiming the home was wrongfully transferred to a third party by way of a forged signature. The couple fled to Canada following the charges and were denied asylum protections. From the Santa Barbara Independent:
Deputy District Attorney Anthony Davis said, as far as he knows, the couple is still in Canada, where they fled following their charges related to the reported squatting incident. Davis said the charges against the couple still stand, as does a warrant for their arrest. They each face counts of felony vandalism and misdemeanor unauthorized entry of a house. Authorities accused the Quaids of breaking a mirror in the home, rearranging furniture, and scratching “RQ” into the mailbox. Davis said Evi also faces a charge of misdemeanor resisting arrest and a separate warrant for being in violation of her misdemeanor probation for skipping out on a $10,000 bill from the San Ysidro Ranch in September 2009.
As of January 2013, Randy’s request for permanent Canadian citizenship — Evi is a Canadian citizen — was turned down by Canadian immigration officials. In 2011, the Department of Justice turned down the District Attorney’s request that the couple be extradited. The Quaids — a previous Santa Barbara court appearance involved Evi wearing a credit card on her forehead and Randy donning a fake sheriff’s badge — have also said they are hiding from Star Whackers, which they say kill celebrities.
Though Quaid claims to want to run for California governor, in 2015, he floated the possibility of becoming a volunteer firefighter in the state of Vermont after a judge dismissed charges of being fugitives from justice against Quaid and his wife. The couple had been wanted in California on multiple charges and were arrested trying to enter the United States from Canada.
