GOP Candidate Convinced His Opponent Is a "Body Double or a Robot"

Longtime GOP Rep. Frank Lucas won his primary in Oklahoma on Tuesday, but one of his opponents is pretty sure the real Frank Lucas died three years ago. Tim Murray wrote a letter announcing his plan to contest Lucas's win, explaining, "It is widely known Rep. Frank D. Lucas is no longer alive and has been displayed by a look alike."

Murray alleges Lucas was executed in Ukraine in 2011 and has since been replaced with a body double, according to KFOR. Lucas told KFOR he's never been to Ukraine. "Many things have been said about me, said to 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," he says.

Murray, who got 5.2 percent of the vote on Tuesday, officially has until the end of the day to contest the primary results. He explains his qualifications for office on his campaign website:

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.

Seems like there's an easy answer here: Murray is "a human," and Lucas is "dead." Murray should get Lucas's votes.
