Following in the footsteps of David Axelrod, CNN Contributor and Republican Strategist Alex Costellanos is willing to shave off his mustache on live television.

He writes in the Huffington Post that if he can get 500 contributions made to the Citizens United for Research in Epilepsy by year’s end, he’ll shave it off on CNN’s Situation Room.

We need to find a cure, which is why I am asking you to help me slash my mustache.

As I’m sure you’ve heard, David pledged to shave the prized possession that has inhabited his upper lip for over 40 years, IF he could raise $1 million dollars for CURE. He shaved his ‘stache on Morning Joe. David’s upper lip is now entirely, 100 percent nude. Actually, he looks quite nice.
