A Congressional Candidate in Oklahoma Is Contesting the Primary Results . . . Because He Says His Opponent Is a Body Double or a Robot?
Frank Lucas is a Congressman from Oklahoma who's held his seat for 20 years. He was in the Republican primary for his seat last week, and got 82.8% of the vote. His opponent, Timothy Ray Murray, got 5.2% of the vote.
But Murray is contesting the election . . . he says Lucas should be disqualified because he's actually DEAD.
On his website, he wrote, quote, "It is widely known Rep. Frank D. Lucas is no longer alive and has been displayed by a look alike." He says Lucas was executed during a trip to the Ukraine in 2011.
Lucas says he's never been to the Ukraine and is very much alive. Quote, "Many things have been said about me in the course of all my campaigns. This is the first time I've ever been accused of being a body double or a robot."
The state election board is reviewing Murray's complaint. (NBC 4 - Oklahoma City / Washington Post / Gawker)
