TALLAHASSEE, FL - Politics tend to bring out the crazies and the latest eccentric candidate to enter the public forum is U.S. Senate contender Augustus Sol Invictus of Florida.

Invictus, who legally changed his name, said in a YouTube campaign video that he's "an old world pagan and a white Southerner."

As for what he expects from constituents, his requests are pretty bizarre.

"I want you to take LSD and practice sorcery," Invictus said in a video. "I want you to treat your bodies as holy temples and take your girlfriend to a strip club so you can seduce a dancer in the back room."

In another part of the video, he asked, "What are you willing to sacrifice?"

The answer for Invictus: a goat. Back in 2012, he decided to walk from central Florida to the Mojave Desert, where he fasted and prayed for a week. When he got back, he told the AP, "I sacrificed an animal to the god of the wilderness ... Yes, I drank the goat's blood."

Should make for an interesting campaign.
