Joe Exotic announces run for president

Updated: Mar 31, 2023

The "Tiger King" is throwing his hat in the ring for the 2024 presidential race.

Joe Exotic, whose real name is Joseph Maldonado-Passage, said on Instagram that he is running for president as a Libertarian.

"Yes, I know I am in Federal Prison and you might think this is a joke but it's not. It is my Constitutional right to do this even from here," says a message from Joe Exotic on his campaign website.

Joe Exotic is currently serving a 21-year prison sentence for a murder-for-hire plot against Carole Baskin. An appeal to reduce his sentence was denied in December.
