This time, Lakers is making a quiet run for a seat on the University of Nebraska Board of Regents.

Two years ago, Lakers appeared to be on track to give Nebraska Democrats a viable shot at taking the governor's office but he later dropped out of the race and then admitted in court to falsifying 51 of 80 campaign pledges on his finance reports. He pleaded guilty to one count of abusing public records and was fined $500.

Now, Lakers says he wants to focus on improving Nebraska's university system, which he argues has long been underfunded and is pricing students out of a college education.
