Tim Murray is not a gracious loser.
Murray, an Oklahoma congressional candidate, is challenging Tuesday’s GOP primary victory of longtime U.S. Rep. Frank Lucas — because he insists his opponent is a body double and the real Lucas was killed in 2011.
A letter on Murray’s website says he doesn’t believe Lucas is qualified for the office, reports KFOR NewsChannel 4.
“It does come as kind of a shock to read that you’re not you,” Lucas said.
Murray’s plans to contest the election is because “…it is widely known Rep. Frank D. Lucas is no longer alive and has been displayed by a look alike.”
He goes into detail in his campaign website by saying that Lucas was executed in the Ukraine “by the world court on or about Jan. 11, 2011…”
Lucas, who has been working on Capitol Hill for two decades, swears he has never even been to Ukraine.
He has also faced Murray in past elections.
“He was the Democratic nominee for Congress two years ago,” Lucas said. “This time, he chose to run as a Republican.”
On Tuesday, Murray received 5.2 percent of the vote, while Lucas had more than 82 percent. Murray feels he is entitled to those votes because he believes Lucas is dead.
“Many things have been said about me, said to me during course of my campaigns,” Lucas told NewsChannel 4. “This is the first time I’ve ever been accused of being a body double or a robot.”
Election officials have received Murray’s letter, but he has until Friday to formally file a petition to contest the primary.
NewsChannel 4 reprinted the two letters from Murray posted on his website:
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.
June 24, I need your vote. The vote cannot be overlooked by the Judicial Branch, however the vote must be there and in order to be heard as the will of The People and not cast-off.
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. Rep. Lucas’ look alike was depicted as sentenced on a white stage in southern Ukraine on or about Jan. 11, 2011.
This is a situation similar to the Senators’ from Kentucky situation in the 2012 election. I am contesting that this matter has happen since his election was blocked, because of the U.S. Defense Department’s use of Mr. Murray’s DNA. To my knowledge, the U.S. Defense Department has not released to the public that information, as it is their confidential information about many people. Congress is likely wanting me to state that all my DNA used will not result in benefits to people I have never had relations with of a family nature. I have been bound to protect that information unless it causes harm to The People.
The contest of election and or petition will be correctly filed with county election boards and with federal offices. I, Hon. Mr. Timothy Ray Murray, fully meet all Constitutional, Federal and Oklahoma requirements for election and for holding Office if the voters’ results show that is the case.
Thank You for your service in giving Oklahomans great current news and information.
Hon. Timothy Ray Murray
