West Virginia Democrats Pick Inmate Over Obama

West Virginia Democrats Pick Inmate Over Obama
Keith Judd, a Texas inmate serving 17 years for extortion, received nearly 70,000 votes in West Virginia.

President Barack Obama has made the Democrats of West Virginia feel like they are prisoners of his big government policies. So many of them voted for an inmate.

Keith Judd, a 53-year-old inmate in Texas who is serving 17 years for extortion, extorted 40 percent of the vote at the West Virginia Democratic Presidential primary. Obama received 59 percent.

The coal-mining State attempted to show the Democratic Party that anyone is a better choice than Obama.

As the Beaumont Enterprise put it: “Nearly 70,000 West Virginians would rather have an actual criminal in the White House than the current occupant.”

“I voted against Obama,” Ronnie Brown, a 43-year-old electrician, told The Associated Press. “I don’t like him. He didn’t carry the state before and I’m not going to let him carry it again.”

Judd got on the ballot by paying a $2,500 fee. He also had to file a notarized certification of announcement. Because Judd received at least 15 percent of the vote he should be represented by at least one delegate at the Democratic National Convention. But it looks doubtful that he will be.

According to Judd’s biography with Project Vote Smart, this is his fifth time to run for President. The self-proclaimed Rastafarian-Christian was a member of the Federation of Super Heroes from 1976-1982. His hobbies include bowling and telling the future.

If you would like to participate in Judd’s campaign, contact his headquarters at: Federal Correctional Institution Texarkana; Post Office Box 7000; Texarkana, TX 75505.
