Actress Geena Davis:‘If elected, I will serve!’

 Academy Award winner Geena Davis isn’t new to the world of D.C. politics — she played the first female president in ABC’s short-lived 2009 series “Commander in Chief.”

So when ITK inquired at a Wednesday event to promote the Healthy Media for Youth Act whether Davis had any real-life political ambitions, she replied, “I would just say, if you write me in, what can I do?”

The bill, sponsored by Sen. Kay Hagan (D-N.C.) and Rep. Tammy Baldwin (D-Wis.), would encourage positive images of women in the media through a grant and research program.

Shortly after ITK asked her question, Hagan and Baldwin, along with a group of Girl Scouts supporting the bill, began chanting, “Geena! Geena!”

After laughing with the crowd, Davis declared, “If elected, I will serve!”
