In the race for Oklahoma's Third Congressional District, Republican challenger Timothy Ray Murray has claimed that incumbent Rep. Frank Lucas is a robot double and is ineligible for the position.
The Daily Mail reported June 28 that Timothy Ray Murray took to his personal website to explain why his opponent, Frank Lucas, was not allowed by law to run for office and that he was, in fact, dead. He wrote that Lucas and several other congressional members were hanged to death by the World Court in 2011.
"Rep. Frank Lucas, and a few other Oklahoma and other States’ Congressional Members were depicted as being executed by The World Court on or about Jan. 11, 2011 in Southern Ukraine," Murray wrote. "On television they were depicted as being executed by the hanging about the neck until death on a white stage and in front of witnesses."
He continued: "Other now current Members of Congress have shared those facts on television also. We know that it is possible to use look alike artificial or man-made replacements, however Rep. Lucas was not eligible to serve as a Congressional Member after that time."
Murray went on to say that this has happened before. He wrote that Kentucky had the same problem in the 2012 election.
He also assured voters in Oklahoma's Third Congressional District that he is "100 percent human."
Murray got 5 percent of the vote on Election Day. It is unclear if any of the voters were swayed one way or the other by his outing of Rep. Frank Lucas.
Bizarre must have been in the air the last week of June because Timothy Ray Murray's plea to voters to not vote for his "robot look-like" opponent wasn't the only weird political event.
In Arizona, there was an actual hearing held by Republican state Sen. Kelli Ward over concerns about "chemtrails," what conspiracy theorists call airplane contrails (except for the more discerning witness who can tell the difference between the two). The Raw Story reported that citizens voiced their fears to the politician, including one who said, "Really, we are being sprayed like we’re bugs and it’s really not okay.”
In Michigan, a young Republican politician who once made the show "World's Dumbest Criminals" said that he was "haunted" by his past felonies. But, as MLive.com reported, candidate Jordan D. Haskins, a man who cannot even vote for himself due to his criminal past, was arrested for trespassing four times and spent time in prison for the incidents. But during said crimes, Haskins engaged in an act he called "cranking," an unusual sexual fetich where jumper cables attached to a car battery are attached at the opposite ends to an individual's genitals.
Even stranger than Haskins story is that the Saginaw County Republican Party, the party he represents, has stated that they will neither support nor condemn the man's run for office.
