"Dr. Drew" Pinsky May Challenge Adam Schiff in Congressional Election

He says he feels it is necessary to challenge Schiff simply to focus his bug-eyes on actual governance and practical problems in the area he supposedly represents.

Celebrity shrink Dr. Drew is considering a run for the California Democrat’s House seat, he told The Hill, because he had become too tied up in the impeachment hearings and lost focus on issues facing the district.

"I wake up every day and drive through this town and I am morally moved where I feel like I have to do something," said the famed doctor, whose full name is Drew Pinsky.

"I was watching all the impeachment proceedings and I was going, 'Oh my God, our Congress is tied up and we're dying out here in California. What are these people doing?'" he lamented, adding, "I thought, 'Oh my God, I have to run for that office at least just to get him to start participating in the governance of this region.'"

Pinsky says he is "very moderate" and frequently shifts his political affiliation. He said he'd probably challenge Schiff as a Democrat, if at all.

But he also doesn't sound like he is very animated to run.

As far as him being "very moderate" -- I dunno. I only know him from the Adam Carolla show and always felt he was the more conservative of the pair, and Adam Carolla was already fairly conservative (for a Hollywood guy).
