Mayoral Nut: “Vote for Me or the Cat Dies”

Bill Haas and catBill Haas of St. Louis is running for mayor, and has posted on his blog that he’s going to kill himself (via Political Wire):

This might be considered a slightly atypical blog, especially in the middle of a mayor’s race.

[…] So what’s this about? In a nutshell, I’m 60 years old, still all alone (except for Sweetie the Rottweiler/cattle dog mix, Mummy the three-legged cat and her two kids, Daddy’s boy and Pudgy, but they’re not really enough) romantically for whatever reasons, and unless something breaks professionally in the next couple of months, I’m going to be out of money and then I’m going to put the animals to sleep and take my life.

Not to sound crass, but would you feel comfortable voting for any candidate who says he’s going to kill himself if he loses (regardless of qualifications)?
