Anti-Virus Creator John McAfee Running for President



    Celebrating Life After Breast Cancer
    FILE - Anti-virus software founder John McAfee talks on his mobile phone as he walks on Ocean Drive in the South Beach area of Miami Beach, Fla., on his way to dinner Wednesday, Dec 12, 2012.

    Computer anti-virus creator John McAfee, the self-described "eccentric millionaire"-turned-fugitive from Belize, filed paperwork Tuesday to run for president of the United States as a third-party candidate.

    "I am founding a new party yet to be announced," McAfee, who turns 70 next week, said in a statement of candidacy filed with the Federal Election Commission, which was first reported by the political newspaper The Hill. A campaign website soon appeared.

    Details on the new party could come as early as Wednesday, when McAfee — who's no longer associated with the software that bears his name — has promised an "official announcement."
