The tinfoil is strong with this one. Oklahoma Republican House candidate Timothy Ray Murray is challenging his primary election defeat because, in his words, “it is widely known that Rep. Frank D. Lucas [his opponent, who won] is no longer alive and has been replaced by a look alike.”
Of all the reasons to contest an election, Murray picks an episode of the Twilight Zone.
Murray believes that Rep. Lucas was executed in 2011 and has since been replaced with a body double. He stated as much in a rambling, Time Cube-lite press release, which reads:
The election for U.S. House for Oklahoma’s 3rd District will be contested by the Candidate, Timothy Ray Murray. I will be stating that his votes are switched with Rep. Lucas votes, because it is widely known Rep. Frank D. Lucas is no longer alive and has been displayed by a look alike. Rep. Lucas’ look alike was depicted as sentenced on a white stage in southern Ukraine on or about Jan. 11, 2011.
This is a situation similar to the Senators’ from Kentucky situation in the 2012 election. I am contesting that this matter has happen since his election was blocked, because of the U.S. Defense Department’s use of Mr. Murray’s DNA. To my knowledge, the U.S. Defense Department has not released to the public that information, as it is their confidential information about many people. Congress is likely wanting me to state that all my DNA used will not result in benefits to people I have never had relations with of a family nature. I have been bound to protect that information unless it causes harm to The People.
Murray has run against Lucas in elections before, but this is the first time that Murray has accused the Republican congressman of ever being a “body double.” Murray’s most recent outing saw him lose to Lucas by a modest margin of 82%-5%.
When asked about Murray’s claims, Rep. Lucas stated that, “It does come as kind of a shock to read that you’re not you.”
Sure it does, Representative. That’s exactly what a body double would want us to think, now isn’t it?
