An Oklahoma election turned Gothic as the defeated party complained that his opponent was, well, no longer human. It's a twist on the old campaigning against a dead person routine. You see, Representative Frank Lucas is apparently no longer Frank Lucas:
Timothy Ray Murray... claims that Lucas was executed three years ago by the World Court and that the Congressman has been replaced by a body double.
Lucas2 might not be an organic doppelganger:
Murray even suggested on his campaign website that the “Frank Lucas” who bested him in the primary might be an artificial look alike or a man-made replacement.
And it's not just the one "Frank Lucas", either:
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.
How did these replacements happen?
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. On television they 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. We know that it is possible to use look alike artificial or manmade replacements, however Rep. Lucas was not eligible to serve as a Congressional Member after that time.
It's fascinating to see how television becomes the source of evidence. "As seen on tv"!
No word on any possible connection to Lucas' previous role on the House Committee on Science, Space and Technology.
