In 2015, McAfee announced a White House bid with libertarian values and an affiliation he created with a nod to his Silicon Valley past: the Cyber Party.

McAfee told Larry King about his presidential run "Personal freedom and personal privacy are paramount. "A number of times I was imprisoned. I'm an individual of civil disobedience."

For years in the early 2000's, CeCe Craig was a house manager for McAfee's former house manager in Woodland Park, Colombia, who knew a cheering side of software legend.
