Defeated Oklahoma Republican Declares Victory, Claims Opponent is Secretly a Robot

lucas-murray-okLet me first warn you that no, this is not satire.  Now, normally I wouldn’t even bother writing about a story such as this because it’s absolutely insane.  And I’m not using hyperbole or exaggerating when I use the word “insane.”

However, it’s so bizarre and ridiculous that, in a political world that’s full of anger and hostility, sometimes a story like this is exactly what we need to just sit back and have a good laugh.

It seems a Republican in Oklahoma is trying to claim victory, even though he lost his election, based on his belief that his opponent isn’t actually his opponent – but an android double masquerading as his opponent.

Oklahoma congressional candidate Tim Murray has announced his plans to challenge Tuesday’s primary election results, where he was defeated by long time Representative Frank Lucas.

In a letter obtained by NewsChannel4 in Oklahoma, Murray goes into some great detail about his belief that Lucas was killed by the World Court in 2011 and has since been replaced by some kind of double.

Here are a few excerpts from Murray’s letter:

“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.”

“We know that it is possible to use look alike artificial or manmade replacements..”

“The election for U.S. House for Oklahoma’s 3rd District will be contested by the Candidate, Timothy Ray Murray. I will be stating 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.”

For the record, Lucas has said that he’s never been to Ukraine.  He won his Republican primary battle over Murray, 82% to 5%.

In my humble opinion, those 5% should be barred from ever voting again.

As I read this story a terrifying thought crossed my mind – I’m almost certain Tim Murray is legally allowed to own firearms.

And while I know this isn’t exactly a “newsworthy story” considering it’s an outlandish claim in a primary race that wasn’t even close to competitive, sometimes it’s good to just sit back and have a good laugh at some of the ridiculousness that comes out during primary season.

Unless, of course, you were secretly killed in southern Ukraine and replaced by a robot.

Then there’s absolutely nothing funny about that.

    Wow. It should hurt. It should hurt him to be that stupid.

    • Francois Bergeron

      more the 5%…

      • Denise Steiner Lickly

        Touche. 🙂

      • Zabilde

        And 52.3% of the democratic vote in 2012 letting him the the democratic candidate for the seat in that year. Where he gained 20% of the total vote.

  • Denise Steiner Lickly

    I’ve said it before and I will say it again: I like ‘crazy’ to be loud and stay front and center… I know where it is and what it is up to. ‘Crazy’ that you don’t see is dangerous.

    Far be it from me to make light of any individual who may or may not have significant mental disabilities. I can, however, guffaw when I hear that a Republican candidate has issues. That just seems to go with the territory.

    82%-5%? Ouch that is real wallop!!

    • gian keysTOOEASY flat mom

      regressive crybabies will claim voter fraud

    I think “insane” might be the wrong word here . If this guy actually BELIEVED that his opponent is a robot, he could be considered insane. But I suspect that her merely wants OTHER PEOPLE, really dumb and gullible people, to believe the robot story, and that makes him a sociopathic liar (not unlike karlrove, whose name I deserves to become a generic word for “sociopathic liar” (not unlike the way “quisling’ became a synonym for “traitor.” It’s not as though his party doesn’t already have a precedent for conning people into believing the most absurd crapola.

    • Jerry Graybosch

      A sociopath would invent a more plausible story. This person is clinically “nuts”.

      • DavidD

        Not all sociopaths are bright.Typical pity me I’ve been wronged sociopathic vibe.It’s the World courts fault not that I’m an obvious dipshit so give me what I must have,power over you.
        Yep,stupid to the point of being delusional sociopath.
        See you are both right.

    • Jason A. Quest

      Sociopathy is also a mental illness.

  • DavidD

    Didn’t Devo do a song about that?
    Are we not men?

  • Larry Watrous

    Hey,,who Knows,the way Republicans attempt to structure elections in their favor,the way they ignore common folk in all their dealings,this may entirely possible,,I believe no resouces should be held back in finding the truth!!!!!!!!!!!!

  • Laura Hurt

    what world court would that be?
    Do the republicans really want to be mocked throughout the world for being so insane?It’s like they’re trying to outdo each other in how crazy their conspiracy ideas can be.

    • Eg Kbbs

      His letter claims ““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.”

      Can you imagine the national cry if American Congressional members were executed by the world court (hint, not headquartered in the Ukraine) and/or in the southern Ukraine?

      Meanwhile we can’t get Bush or Cheney to visit the Hague.

      • Laura Hurt

        ah, I never heard it called the World Court before. No, that’s definitely not based in Ukraine, nor does it execute people.

      • gian keysTOOEASY flat mom

        “judge” Jeanine pirro is the FOX “news” boss of the “world ( see: CAVUTO) court”

      • Eg Kbbs

        Had to google Jeanine Pirro. According to wikipedia, ” Justice with Judge Jeanine which premiered in January 2011″ And he claimed the execution of Congressional members was Jan 11, 2011. Same date. I think we’ve got a conspiracy here ! 😉

      • gian keysTOOEASY flat mom

        and repubs still suckle FOX “news’ shenanigans

      • DavidD

        Just tell Dubya there is a man behind the door there who will give him some candy and a new paint by number set at the Hague
        Tell Cheny they are doing a 90 minute live Meet the Press broadcast/Halliburton stockholder meeting there.
        Keep playing the Imperial March from Star Wars and give him his Sith Lord costume.He won’t be able to resist.

      • Chomper Lomper Tawee

        Hilarious LMFAO!!!!

  • Rod Haney

    This Tim Murray sounds like he’s best friends with that Alex Jones dipshit.

    So how do we know that this is even the REAL Tim Murray? Maybe he’s the actual robot, just trying to deflect the truth away from himself. Maybe he’s really one of the lizard people,,, cause they are shifty like that 😉

    • DavidD

      Somebody says he doesn’t blink but just licks his eyes with a big blue forked tongue.Sure sign of lizard people infiltration.Must warn others.

      • Eg Kbbs

        So is he a David Icke lizard or a Dr. Who Auton ?

      • DavidD

        Nothing that good,standard utility GOP two toed minefield cleaning bed pan carrier lizard.

    • gian keysTOOEASY flat mom

      hey!!! I love TEGUS!!! 🙂

  • Richard Talbert

    the crazy Republicans ..and its special kind of crazy, at that .. lol

  • John Swanson

    Well, you are going to be really embarrassed if this turns out to be true. I note a slight resemblance to the “Lost in Space” robot.

  • Rita Connelly

    but if you don’t believe in science, how can you believe in functioning robots.

  • FD Brian

    At least he had the good sense to change political affiliations this election.

    • Rex

      Considering he won by a wide margin as a Dem and got slaughtered as a Republican, he needs to go back to the party as nuts as him.

      • gian keysTOOEASY flat mom

        republicans are so sane: ( see: quotidian self immolation -politically–)

      • DavidD

        Like Bachmann and Gohmert,real GOP not RINO’s.

  • Chad

    I see a possible run at the white house in his future. He should pick Rob Ford as his running mate.

  • Guest

    If someone tells you robots don’t exist, they’re probably a robot.

  • Toomuchcoffeeguy

    If someone tells you androids don’t exist, they’re probably an android.

    He should have got insurance from Old Glory Insurance; they cover this sort of thing.

  • Wv Widow

    Is it the guy on the right? He DOES look a little like an android.

  • Rex

    The hilarious thing is the author wants the five-percent who voted for him in the Republican primary to not be allowed to vote again. What does the author think about the 52.3 percent of Democrats who voted for him in 2012 when he won, repeat W-O-N the Democratic nomination?

    Did I mention the nut job who was slaughtered in the Republican primary ****WON*** the Democratic primary?

    But let’s let the 52 percent of Dems keep voting.

    • gian keysTOOEASY flat mom

      please elaborate and give details: what U write is interesting

    • gian keysTOOEASY flat mom

      write the details; don’t crap out + try 2 send me a link

      • Rex

        I did. Not sure why it got deleted. Perhaps it blows away the lack of research the ideologue did. The link I posted was to the results when he ran (and won handily) as a Dem previously.

        He switched parties because he’s obsessed with beating the conservative. He got a few thousand liberal Dems to register as Republican to try to oust him.

        Since my link got deleted, just Google the results of the last election when he won running as a leftist Democrat.

  • Alierias

    Holy fuckstick, just … holy shit !

  • John Donnelly

    Politician are like farts it takes one to know one. But that’s another discussion. Like the cops say in anyway which way but loose you guys are violating the laws of nature unfortunatly we don’t enforce those laws.

  • Dmactds

    On my screen there’re two pics of two different men but no indication of who’s what…; what’s the matter, FP, afraid to identify the ‘robot’?

    Murray’s delusion is known as Capgras syndrome, which afflicts people with dementia and people with schizophrenia.
