wyclef for president

Wyclef Is in Hiding

According to the AP, Wyclef received death threats yesterday while waiting to hear if he's officially eligible to run for president, and is now in hiding somewhere in Haiti. As Pras informed us, Haiti's electoral commission was supposed to announce various candidates' eligibility yesterday but has not yet done so. (Technically candidates must have lived in Haiti for the five years prior to the election, but Wyclef claims his position as a roving ambassador exempts him.) Wyclef told the AP that the threats instructed him to get out of Haiti. In the words of Martin Lawrence, shit just got real. [AP]
