Celebrity and politics

TT: Frank Andrews is recognizable to many as the anchor of local television newscasts for years, first at WNEP-TV, now at WYOU-TV.
His real name is Frank Shimkus and he's thinking about running for the state representative seat currently filled by Gaynor Cawley. If Mr. Andrews runs, the name he uses on the ballot could help determine his success.

If I remember right Frank left WNEP because he had one too many cocktails at night.

Another rumored candidate is Marisa Burke the present anchor of WNEP. The buzz is she will take on State Senate minority leader Bob Mellow.
