Pete Wentz voted this afternoon in Beverly Hills for the democratic candidate for President, Barack Obama.
Pete had this to say about his right to vote; “I don’t usually go out of my way to indoctrinate people or tell people, ‘You should do this because of me, or you shouldn’t do this because of me,’ but I think it’s important for people to get out there,”
Pete’s pregnant wife Ashlee wasn’t out there voting with him, but he insisted she would be out voting later in the day.
With Wentz, it was never a question on who to vote for, as one of the candidates holds a special place in his heart. I’m talking about Joe Biden.
If your not familiar with that name, due to his being overshadowed by the power of Palin, Joe is Obama’s running mate, and he’s responsible for getting Pete’s parents together.
According to Wentz; “I would not be standing here actually in reality at all because my parents met working for Biden,” he said. “They met on the campaign, so they have this particular affection for Joe. He came to their wedding. If it weren’t for Joe Biden, I would not exist as a human being.”
Here’s an image released by Pete of himself as a baby with Joe the bummer and his mom, Dale.
Maybe Pete can re-enact this photo with the Senator and his new baby, which is due any day now!
