Huh? OK GOP Candidate Claims Primary Winner is Actually Dead and Possibly a Robot

The Republican race for Congress just got a little whackier in Oklahoma after a loser in the primary has declared he is the winner after all.

GOP candidate Tim Murray said although he garnered few votes in the primary, he still should have all the votes from his opponent’s landslide victory transferred over to him, because the so-called winner, Rep. Frank Lucas, is actually dead and has been replaced by a double or a robot.

In a press release explaining his reasons for contesting the election, Murray said that he will be asking 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.”

In case you are wondering, there is no record of Frank Lucas being executed in the Ukraine and according to the Congressman himself (or his dastardly body double if you buy Murray’s claims), “I’ve never been to Ukraine.”

Murray, though, said that the whole execution of the real Lucas was televised and even other Congressmen know about it.

“On television they [a few other Oklahoma and other States’ Congressional Members] were depicted as being executed by the hanging about the neck until death on a white stage and in front of witnesses. Other now current Members of Congress have shared those facts on television also,” Murray also said on his website. “We know that it is possible to use look-alike artificial or man-made replacements.”

Rep. Lucas, who garnered 82 percent of the votes, said even after years of campaigning in the public eye, being declared dead, executed and possibly a robot is something that has never come up before as a way to discredit him.

“Many things have been said about me, said to me during course of my campaigns. This is the first time I’ve ever been accused of being a body double or a robot,” said Rep. Lucas, who assured the news he is the real deal after all.

    How does anyone prove that they are “real”?

    After all, we now have trained robots reading the news very convincingly.

      Convincing, perhaps, but an adult human brain has more interconnections between its 100 trillion synapses than there are helium nuclei in the known universe. To build a robot or computer that matches or surpasses a human being’s power of comprehension would itself be beyond human comprehension.
