While funny,

This is technically impossible. If one ever reads actual campaign registration documentation and candidate declaration paperwork, one has to swear under oath, they are an eligible elector of the district they are running in.

"Elector" means natural person with right to vote in that district. Corporations are artificial persons and don't have the right to vote.

I understand the dead tend to vote regularly in Chicago in heavy Democrat precincts, I don't think artificial persons are reasonably doable. (Yes, I'm saying I think its easier for the dead to vote than an existing artificial person.)

If one actually did this, ran an artificial person for office by filling out ballot access paperwork, they would be guilty of a felony.
