A 22-year-old orthodox Jewish student named Mindy Meyer is running for New York State Senate on the Republican and Conservative tickets.

Her slogan: “I’m Senator and I Know It.” Along with the screencap of her website above, her homepage greets you with an LMFAO anthem.

Here’s a little bit more about her from The Jewish Voice:

Meyer – an Orthodox resident of Flatbush – already has some experience in public service. Currently serving as a judicial intern for Judge Francois Rivera at the King County Supreme Court, the ambitious young woman also attends law school at night. According to Meyer, she was interested in politics from as far back as she can remember. “I met Mayor Giuliani when I was twelve,” Meyer says. “When we went to Washington for our 8th grade graduation trip, I tried to coordinate a trip to meet the president at the White House.”

A Touro College graduate, Meyer selected her law major as a means of qualification for political office. “I think many of the people who are in office right now, such as Kevin Parker, are disconnected from the younger generation,” Meyer said candidly. “They want people who are young, innovative, have new ideas and someone who can relate to the people. When I went around collecting signatures within the community, many of the people didn’t even know who Kevin Parker is. He isn’t involved in the community and is out of touch with his constituents.”

Meyer does not view her lack of actual political experience as a negative factor.“I can tell you one thing,” she declares, “I don’t have experience in corruption. That is how politics has to change. There is always corruption, but I plan to stick to my values and ensure that none of that goes on in my district.”

Meyer has already staked out several issues that she says concern her most and would be particular priorities for her if she obtained office. Those include school vouchers, the plight of battered women and the need of young adults who are involved in gangs to join educational programs that would prepare them for a degree. Meyer also wants to focus on police brutality, particularly when it appears to be racially motivated.

Something tells us she’s about to get Internet famous very quickly.
