Marianne Williamson, a new age guru, has lined celebrity endorsements from Kim Kardashian and others in her run for Congress.

Can a candidate for Congress get elected if she’s endorsed by a woman with purple hair? She can if she’s New Age Guru Marianne Williamson and she’s running in California’s trendy 33rd District, which covers West Hollywood and LA’s gold coast.

Williamson held a campaign rally at the Kayne Griffin Corcoran Gallery yesterday (Apr. 8) in LA that drew a slew of celebrities.

Kardashian was joined by Katy Perry, Nicole Richie and Kim‘s sister Kourtney Kardashian, as well as a other supporters.

The seat is solidly liberal. Rep. Henry Waxman has represented the District for 40 years. He announced his retirement this year, a crucial one for Congress.

California’s 33rd Congressional District.

Democrats are trying to break the Republican hold on the lower chamber, which has been the source of gridlock in Washington during most of President Obama’s term in office.

State Sen. Ted Lieu is the official Democratic Party nominee. He edged out Los Angeles City Controller Wendy Greuel and former Clinton administration official and radio host Matt Miller.

Williamson, 61, is a spiritual teacher, author and lecturer and co-founder of The Peace Alliance. Her leading cause is to establish a United States Department of Peace.

Sort of been done, since the Department of Defense was known as the War Department until 1949. But hey, why not?
