The folks over at the BBC announced that Russian Oil Giant Mikhail Khodokovsky intends to run for parliment:

Jailed Russian businessman Mikhail Khodorkovsky has announced that he intends to stand for parliament. In a statement on his website, the former Yukos chief said he would contest a seat in a Moscow district, in a by-election later this year. Khodorkovsky, once Russia's wealthiest man, was sentenced to nine years in May for fraud and tax evasion.

I'm not going to lie, but Russia sounds a little bit like another place i know. First off you have a leader who suspended election because of terrorist and ruined opponents. Second off you have people plan on running for office in Jail (no mentions of Dan R. here please)
