Still Not Voting For Wyclef Jean For President of Haiti Friday News Roundup

So now it's even more official: after confirming to the New York Times yesterday that he was running for the Haitian presidency, Wyclef Jean went on CNN last night to formally announce his campaign. Don't vote for him. Meanwhile, NPR questions whether he's even eligible to run, and the international humanitarian Sean Penn is "very suspicious" of Jean's intentions. Most damning? 'Clef's own cousin and former fellow Fugee Pras has already endorsed another candidate. He's voting for Michel Martelly, another sometime Haitian musician, because Martelly "is the most competent candidate for the job." But it's not like Pras would know what kind of job Jean would do running a complex, multi-million dollar enterprise, right? [Vote No On Wyclef Jean]
