Governor Steven Seagal of Arizona? It could be a possibility, if Steven Seagal decides to run for the office. The seventh-dan degree Aikido black belt has plenty of fans who remember him from his starring roles in such movies as Under Siege, Under Siege 2: Dark Territory, and Marked for Death, and he’s earned new fans for his bad-ass exploits arresting genuine perps in the reality TV series, Steven Seagal — Lawman: Maricopa County (The Lost Episodes).
According to Phoenix, Arizona’s ABC affiliate, KNXV, Steven Seagal, 61, is considering a run for the governorship of Arizona in the next election, though his main concern is to bring a bit of law-and-order to Arizona through his crime-fighting actions as a duly deputized (volunteer) lawman for Sheriff Joe Arpaio of Maricopa County, Arizona.
Sheriff Arpaio has a reputation as being “America’s Toughest Sheriff,” though he has come under fire for his alleged racist attitudes and practices in defending the borders of Arizona.
