Introducing Keith R. Judd

18 04 2008

So in our news of the day, I introduce you to Keith R. Judd. No relation to the singing sensation of the 80s known as The Judds to my knowledge.

If you were having doubts of who to vote for president, Mr. Judd would like you to consider him for the highest office in the land.

Of course, Judd is in prison until 2013 in Texas, but that didn’t stop Idaho from putting him on the ballot.

A federal prison inmate got himself listed on the ballot for Idaho’s May 27 primary as a Democratic presidential candidate, the state’s top election official said.

Keith Russell Judd is serving time at the Beaumont Federal Correctional Institution in Texas for making threats at the University of New Mexico in 1999. He’s scheduled for release in 2013.

Judd, 49, qualified for the ballot by submitting a notarized form and paying the required $1,000 fee, state Secretary of State Ben Ysursa said. As a result, Democratic voters will be able to choose between Barack Obama, Hillary Clinton and Judd.

“We got conned,” Ysursa told The Spokesman-Review of Spokane, Wash.

Yes, I believe that con is a good enough word for what happened here.

Here, my friends, is the government taking care of business.

Betcha five bucks he even gets some votes.
