[b]Michael Jackson “Lobbies” for Taco Bell[/b] # Wearing Spider-Man Mask, Jackson Pops Into Congressman’s Office May 20, 2003 12:16 pm US/Central [img align=left]http://www.mjeol.com/mj_03_spidermanmask_small.jpg[/img]SOLVANG, Calif. (AP) Reclusive pop star Michael Jackson, wearing a red-and-blue Spider-Man mask, popped into a congressman’s field office, seeking an answer to a critical issue. The costumed Jackson had a question for Steve Lavagnino, the deputy director in the new Solvang office of Congressman Elton Gallegly. Jackson asked: “How come Solvang doesn’t have any fast food restaurants?” After being told Solvang’s only chain restaurant was a Subway sandwich shop, Jackson replied, “I love Taco Bell.” The entertainer then pulled his webbed-crusader disguise off his face and apologized for disturbing Lavagnino, although Jackson didn’t know what kind of office he’d wandered into. “I’ve seen you on TV,” said LavagNiño, whose father Larry is the mayor of nearby Santa Maria. “Don’t believe everything you see on TV,” replied Jackson, who isn’t registered to vote in Santa Barbara County. His sprawling Neverland Ranch is nearby. After a few more pleasantries and an autograph, Jackson rode off in a black Bentley. LavagNiño’s boss didn’t believe his tale until he faxed him the autograph. “Elton laughed,” LavagNiño said. “It’s very hard to top that visit. My first week in the office and I get the most famous person on the planet.” Jackson later was seen at a Taco Bell/Pizza Hut drive-through window in Buellton. After ordering two cheese pizzas, breadsticks, water and three chicken soft tacos, Jackson was spotted in the passenger seat. As his pizzas cooked, Jackson, face exposed, talked to employees and signed autographs, said Ana Torres, restaurant assistant manager. “He was great,” Torres said. “We all got his autograph. He talked to customers.” Jackson also had his son, Prince Michael, with him, she said. “He had blond hair, he was really cute,” Torres said. :moreSource: [url=http://cbs2chicago.com/entertainmentnews/entertainment_story_140131716.html]cbs2chicago.com[/url] :moreSource: [url=http://www.signonsandiego.com/news/features/20030520-1815-ca-people-jackson.html]SignOnSanDiego.com[/url] :rollinglaugh You can leave your comments in the :document[url=http://forum.mjeol.com/index.php?act=ST&f=3&t=4322&s=12a2b3fb5d30a262ee7279fc7d13ef6d]MJ NEWS[/url] forum!
