Losing Okla. candidate claims opponent is dead, winner is body double

A candidate for the Oklahoma Republican primary isn’t taking his loss to Oklahoma Rep. Frank Lucas very well.

The Washington Post reported that a press release on Timothy Ray Murray’s campaign website, the losing side, states that, “it is widely known Rep. Frank D. Lucas is no longer alive and has been displayed by a look alike.”

Wait, what? Yes, this is for real.

Lucas won the Republican primary last week with 82.8 percent of the vote while Murray only notched 5.2 percent of the vote, but Murray isn’t buying it.
