The Miami Herald talked with the ladies' pet and the men's regret, the Universal Heartthrob, Austin Idol (real name Dennis McCord) about his plans to run for mayor of Tampa Florida. Now "Tampa's Pet, Politican's Regret," he hopes to help boost the employment and tourism rates while balancing the budget and dealing with the housing crisis. Will his history, which includes cashing a novelty check awarded to him for winning a battle royal, come back to haunt him?
