Texas Democratic Rep. Shiela Jackson Lee probably has nothing to worry about but her seat is being contested by Maurice Duhon, Jr. He also goes by "Cornbreadd," his rapper name.

Cornbreadd is running as an independent to unseat Jackson Lee.

From the Houston Press:

"Although I am fervently proud of both our district and our city, I believe we can do better," Duhon says on his campaign's Web site. "The current instability of our financial markets, a rising rate of poverty, and a massive national debt are just a few of the reasons why we must do better.

"I plan to introduce and participate in an evolved and updated political conversation with the residents and business owners of the 18th district and her surrounding areas," he adds.

Cornbreadd Duhon dialed back his musical career as a rapper and member of Tha Fucking Transmissions more than a year ago, when he began writing his blog PoliticalAbyss.

Let's take a moment to enjoy a Cornbreadd production. From his YouTube channel:
