When in trouble during election, claim your opponent is a robot look-alike

Yeah… that’s the ticket. Just when you think it could not get any weirder, it does. A candidate in Oklahoma is contesting his opponent, because… he is a robot look alike.

Oklahoma Republican claims congressional opponent is dead, replaced with body double | KFOR.com.

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.”

Murray says that he believes Lucas was hanged “…executed by the world court on or about jan. 11, 2011…” in Ukraine.

What “world court”? Lucas has never been to the Ukraine. This is ridiculous.

You can see for yourself the insanity that is Murray’s web site:

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.

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.

The World knows the truth and We must always display and communicate the truth. I will always share public information with the truth when honored to serve as your Representative.

Because you want someone out of touch with reality as your representative? I am flabbergasted. Lucas is right, Murray is not fit for office.

    Out of touch with reality? That’s being kind. The man has completely lost his marbles. Mind you, that does not always seem to have been a bar to seeking, and gaining political office. Is no one in his own party saying anything about this?

      Peter – watch the video, back in 2012 he was the actual Democrat running for the district. This doesn’t have anything to do with party politics. It would be interesting to find out if really is crazy.

    I wonder if this is Capgras Syndrome, believing someone has been replaced by a double or robot. It’s extraordinarily odd, whatever it is. It’s perhaps unfortunate that Mr Murray’s sidebar menus on his website read “Issues/About Candidate.” I’ll say.

    It also shows that 5% of people will vote for you, regardless.

      My first thought as well.

      Still, a good LMD is okay by me.

    His record as an “ambassador” suggests he is no stranger to peculiar beliefs. He places it on record that he has, among other achievements;

    “Requested and obtained in 2013, Protection from partial or whole life placement on Starship without the knowledge and or will of any person(s) on Earth or in Space, and the storage of partial human size life on Earth or in this Solar system. ”

    and

    “Requested and obtained removal, from humans, of an illegal
    de-human chip from persons abroad and in armed forces use. Helped block the 7th day Legislation in the ‘70’s that would put the 666 de-human chip in every person on earth. “

    There was a story written years ago about a political candidate who was accused of being a robot. By Asimov, I think. Maybe that’s where Murray got the idea. I’ve never heard of Capgras Syndrome, but substitution of humans has been the plot device in many a sf story.

    I can’t find any document where Mr. Murray claims his opponent is a robot. The press release on Mr. Murray’s website only claims his opponent to be a “look alike”.

    How do we know Murray isn’t the one who’s a robot?

    Look under the hood, of course.

      I see what you did there. More likely to find just another pointy-headed political hack.

    He did write: “We know that it is possible to use look alike ARTIFICIAL or manmade replacements …” (emphasis added).

    What does “artificial” mean? A robot? A clone? In any case he is presupposing a highly advanced technology that according to consensus reality simply does not exist, and which must at the very least be decades away.

    Today. we can’t even produce a wholly credible CGI human on a screen.

      They’re probably the not-robots from *The World’s End*!

    Its pretty sad when a political candidate’s official webpage has a low Web of Trust score for “misleading claims or unethical”. Politically, I’m moderate but still align myself (and register as ) a Republican; although the saying “I didn’t leave the party, the party left me” seems to apply more and more. If this clown had actually won the primary, it probably would have been the straw that broke the camel’s back to register Independent, instead. (Even though, its not my state, it would be representative of the problems with the party on the national level)

    Obviously, it was the robot that was hanged.

    The story was indeed by Isaac Asimov and was called “Evidence”.

    I’m fairly certain that robots would do a much better job of running the United States than just about any of our current elected officials.

    Mr. Murray should hire Andrew Basiago to represent his case in court.
