Federal Inmate Keith Judd Receiving Sizable Percent of Vote in West Virginia Democratic Primary

Barack Obama was not the only Democrat on the ballot on Tuesday in West Virginia’s Democratic Presidential Primary. Keith Judd — also known as Inmate No. 11593-051 at the Federal Correctional Institution in Texarkana, Texas — was running against him.

Judd, who is serving out a 17.5 year sentence for extortion, currently has received 40 percent of the vote, with 83 percent of precincts reporting, according to The Associated Press. Obama currently has received 60 percent of the vote.

Obama’s lack of popularity in West Virginia has been well-documented. The state’s governor Earl Ray Tomblin and it’s junior senator Joe Manchin, both Democrats, have kept their distance from the president.

A further potential embarrassment for the Democrats, as The Charleston Gazette reports, Judd only needs 15 percent of the vote — which, indeed, it looks like he has accomplished — in order to be entitled to have at least one delegate represent him at the Democratic National Convention in Charlotte, N.C. this summer.

  1. That is just too funny. On the other hand I'd vote for him over #OccupyResoluteDesk.

  2. Really. That is amazing that the Democrats in WVA gave him 40%. Hilarious! Things ain't been going too good for the boy lately. Couldn't have happened to a better Marxist.

  3. Inmate NO. 11593-051 seems to have gotten most of his votes in the Coal Country. Obamanites say this is because of raaaaacsm. It couldn't possibly be because of the war Obama has declared against miners. Nooo, it's because Obama is BLLLLLACK! Idiots.
