Simmons: Congressional Run in Short Shorts

7/24/2008 10:27 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Richard SimmonsRichard Simmons could make Congress a better place, at least for TMZ, because he might run for office.

Richie testified before the House Education and Labor Committee today on the subject of childhood obesity. Not realizing politicians are actually reviled figures, he said, "I want to have the respect of a congressman, I want to talk like a congressman, and maybe, someday, I'll be a congressman."

What to wear for the swearing in? We can't wait.
