Congressional Candidate Accuses His Opponent Of Being Dead

Posted By Tristyn Bloom On 2:37 PM 06/27/2014 In | No Comments

An Oklahoma Republican is contesting Rep. Frank Lucas’s Tuesday reelection on unusual grounds–that Rep. Lucas is actually dead, and that a body double ran in his place.

Tim Murray, who ran to represent Oklahoma’s 3rd district, published a letter on his website saying “it is widely known Rep. Frank D. Lucas is no longer alive and has been displayed by a look alike… 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.”

“Many things have been said about me, said to me during course of my campaigns,” said Lucas. “This is the first time I’ve ever been accused of being a body double or a robot.”

Murray lost to Lucas by about 51,000 votes, having secured just 5% of the vote. This is a big step backward for Murray, who got 20% of the vote–nearly 55,000 people–as the Democratic nominee in 2012.

“I, Timothy Ray Murray, am a human, born in Oklahoma, and obtained and continue to fully meet the requirements to serve as U.S. Representative when honored to so. I will never use a look alike to replace my (The Office’s) message to you or to anyone else, as both the other Republican Challengers have,” he said in a statement on his website.

The 3rd congressional district is Oklahoma’s largest and has been represented by Lucas since 2003.

"Of all the dispositions and habits which lead to political prosperity, religion and morality are indispensable supports. In vain would that man claim tribute to patriotism who should labor to subvert these great pillars of human happiness -- these firmest props of the duties of men and citizens. . . . reason and experience both forbid us to expect that national morality can prevail in exclusion of religious principles."
George Washington

"Only a virtuous people are capable of freedom. As nations become more corrupt and vicious, they have more need of masters."
