I came across it today in, Reading the OED; one man, one year, 21,730 pages. I thought HAL might have use for it. The author, Ammon Shea, puts it thus:
"Empleomania (n.) A manic compulsion to hold public office."
"I would suggest that anyone who, in this day and age, is stricken with the urge to hold public office is deserving of this diagnosis, and should immediately be banned for life from 'serving' the public in any capacity that requires more responsibility than that of a hot dog vendor."
