OJ Simpson’s Daughter’s Boyfriend Is Running For Office In Florida

OJ Simpson’s daughter’s boyfriend is running for office in Florida.

Robert Blackmon, 28, who is dating Simpson’s daughter Sydney, is among eight candidates going for an empty council seat in St Petersburg.

He has addressed that his romantic connection may sway some voters, saying: ‘If that’s the will of the people, that’s the will of the people… I hope to keep [the campaign] to the issues.’

One of his campaign signs is planted in front of her house but he admitted he ‘probably should not be talking about the Simpsons without their permission’.

Blackmon told the New York Post that his girlfriend, 31, is a very private person and that she has ‘got his back’.

He added: ‘She’s been selflessly supporting me and not worried about herself.

‘The entire Simpson family are great people. They’ve been great friends to me.’

Downtown and the city’s south-east end fall in District 6, which Blackmon is vying for.

Two weeks ago, Orenthal ‘OJ’ James Simpson was granted parole after nine years in prison.

The former football star will now be released from prison this October after four members of the Nevada Parole Board unanimously approved his parole.

Simpson was joined at Lovelock Correctional Facility by his lawyer Malcolm LaVergne for the hearing, who arrived alongside Simpson’s close friend Tom Scotto, his sister Shirley Baker, and his daughter Arnelle.
