Tim Murray

An Oklahoma congressional candidate has announced he plans to contest Tuesday’s primary election of long time Rep. Frank Lucas.

In a bizarre letter obtained by NewsChannel 4, Tim Murray says he doesn’t feel Rep. Lucas is qualified for office…Murray brings it up in his letter announcing his plan to contest Lucas’s election writing, “…it is widely known Rep. Frank D. Lucas is no longer alive and has been displayed by a look alike…”

…His campaign website goes into detail about his theory that Lucas was hanged “…executed by the world court on or about jan. 11, 2011…” in Ukraine…“I’ve never been to Ukraine,” said Rep. Lucas.

For the past 20 years, Lucas has been working in Congress, and he’s faced Murray in past elections.

“He was the Democratic nominee for Congress two years ago. This time, he chose to run as a Republican,” said Rep. Lucas.

On Tuesday, 5.2 percent of Oklahomans voted for Murray. Lucas won more than 82 percent of the vote. Since Murray doesn’t believe Lucas is living, he wants those votes.

“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.

RTFA for copies of two letters describing the World Court trial and execution Murray says he saw on television.

Draw your own conclusions. Har.

Thanks, Mike

    ohh… not again. I wonder what kind of laugh RE@DER would get out of cross-canned news like that.

    “Surely, if we take on thinking partners––or, at the least, thinking servants––in the form of machines, we will be more comfortable with them, and will relate to them more easily, if they are shaped like humans.
    It will be easier to be friends with human-shaped robots than with specialized machines of unrecognizable shape. And I sometimes think that, in the desperate straits of humanity today, we would be grateful to have nonhuman friends, even if they are only the friends we build ourselves.”

    The builders put in a radio so the drivers would pay less attention. These things are killing more people than the terrorists. Now they have put in defective ignitions because the body count isn’t high enough. Supposedly the NSA is the problem? It’s never all the nuts behind the wheels.

    It seems the logic is that with everybody bored to death reading Snowden NSA documents nobody will show up for the war they are throwing. It’s going to cost $100K.

      I’m getting the feeling that John Young is being, perhaps intentionally, misunderstood with this talk of war aversion.

      I don’t believe he has inside knowledge that the documents will be released — just that they must be by july; He’s running on faith.

      The ‘war’ of which he speaks is probably the next CIPA, PIPA, SOPA, some kind of A to come down the pike and kill the net as it is known now to where it doesn’t matter if the documents are later released, or not… no way to read them.

    Fishing is more important than voting. We are trying to stock the lake, with water. This is one of those places with dry lakes, under water mortgages and no gardens. The food comes from 3000 miles away. Not exactly your model for survivable living. If we vote for more idiots we may keep the car dealer open for another 6 months (Interstate closed though). The filling station is only good for another 4 though. You used to be able to walk to the lake and did more fishing and less driving. With the golf course closings, people are doing less driving and less putting too. We’re getting back in the fight in Iraq and there’s more dying. Fishing and golfing is out. You voted and you lost. You can’t lose with robots.

  9. Political & Critical says:

    One thing you (Eidard) didn’t make very clear: NEITHER candidate is actually dead! In fact, both candidates are/were very much animated (alive and moving around) during their campaigns.

    The other thing not clearly mentioned is that Tim Murray is NOT the incumbent (the guy in office). In fact, Tim Murray is the crazy guy who had previously been registered as a DEMOCRAT! And now that Murray has re-registered as a republican this somehow makes the news?! Go figure the bias on that little tidbit of info.

    In any case, the absolute insane claim that Tim Murry makes is that the winner (and ongoing incumbent) Frank Lucas was somehow REPLACED — as if Lucas were some kind of Manchurian Candidate or something. What’s more, Tim Murray is claiming that the real Frank Lucas was killed by some unknown “world court.” (Didn’t they do an episode of this on the Twilight Zone or somewhere?)

    But back to that bias thing. You want to talk about crazy politicians?! Just look at some of the crazy shit Democrat Bill Clinton said the other day in Denver while talking to Meet the Press’s David Gregory. Bill Clinton was a 2-term President with some very real power unlike some dip shit legislator from the State of Oklahoma. Bill Clinton said that it takes 10 years for an economy to fully recover after it has taken a nose dive. So if you follow that kind of reasoning (which, on the surface, seems sound) it would seem to be a black eye on his OWN presidency that George W. Bush inherited! But do you hear anyone in the press calling him on it? Do you even hear anyone asking Bill Clinton why all the W’s on everything in the White House were removed just before the Clinton’s left the place?! NO! We have to go WAY DOWN to LOCAL POLITICS in the backwards state of Oklahoma to show any crazy politician on the republican side — who wasn’t even a republican in the first place!!!

    … Not that very many republicans don’t deserve a little condemnation for the crap they have pulled and continue to pull. But let’s be fair! Ask the tough question: why the fuck is this NATIONAL political news?! Doesn’t crap like this belong in the society section along with other pure bullshit like what the Cardashion’s are up to?

    • pedro says:

      That kind of shit that Clinton said about economy recovery was stolen from fidel castro who has been saying that it takes more time to make the revolutionary economy successful everytime someone in the island got rowdy about it (and quickly incarcerated for it). That and blaming the embargo which only the US followed… albeit less and less every year. Of course, that time to recover got longer the next time he talked about the subject

      And same thing the cuban proxies say about the downfall of the venezuelan economy. Right now they claim 15 years is not enough to recover the economy they not only brought to its knees but keep on bringing further down.

      Now, seeing the ties between some of Obomba’s policies, how good ol’ billie has become pals with sean penn for his Haitian businesses and how sean penn is involved in the venezuelan revolution, I’m not a bit surprised about Clinton’s opinion about economy recovery lapses. Expect him to lengthen his estimate shall another demagogue gets into office.

    If I am as partisan as DU, I’d note more voted for this kook (20%)when he ran as a Democrat:

    To smear Republicans motivates DU blogs, to the absurd degree.

      For liberuls like eidard, a politician makes good decisions when he’s part of the DNC. Whatever he has done before gets automatically forgiven and forgotten.
