Jose Canseco continued his odd -- some would say desperate -- bid to conjur up attention after claiming late last week his intentions to seek office in Toronto.

As promised, Canseco once again addressed his close to 500,000 Twitter followers Tuesday night in attempt to hammer out the ways in which he could potentially advance his entertaining bid.

The former Blue Jays slugger announced his intentions to run for office via Twitter on Friday if Toronto mayor Rob Ford is booted from office.

While Ford is fighting in court to keep his job -- he's appealing a ruling that he violated conflict-of-interest laws -- Canseco legally can't become mayor. In order to run, you must be a Canadian citizen -- Canseco isn't -- and either be a resident or own property in Toronto.

As a result, Canseco did what any reasonable politician would do: seek ways to circumvent the rules.

As you can see (below), the Cuban-born, six-time all-star let loose on Twitter.
