Controversial internet entrepreneur Kim Dotcom is getting ready to take his political ambitions to stateside. Dotcom announced on Twitter Monday that his Internet Party is going to launch in the United States in 2015:
The Internet Party is coming to the United States in 2015. Stay tuned for our celebrity founders from the music, film and Internet industry.

Dotcom added that the party will be run and financed by U.S. citizens, and that he would only “help with public relations.”
This wouldn’t be the first time Dotcom has dabbled in politics. The former executive of the now-defunct Megaupload storage service helped to launch New Zealand’s Internet Party in early 2014.
