A Texas felon gave President Obama a run for his money in the West Virginia Democratic primary, beating Obama in several counties and winning enough of the vote to be eligible for at least one delegate at the convention, according to the Associated Press.
Perennial candidate Keith Russell Judd, currently serving 210 months in a federal prison, is currently pulling down roughly 40 percent of the vote to Obama's 60 percent.
Judd has caused problems in other elections as well. In 2008, Idaho Democrats were peeved Judd qualified for the ballot, with one Democratic official calling him a "yahoo prisoner in Texas."
It's not the first time that Democratic primary voters have sent a message of disapproval to Obama the president lost 15 Oklahoma counties to anti-abortion activist Randall Terry in the March primary.

Is that a mink he’s wearing??
perhaps a “mullet”?
Love it! lol
I think he stole it from Zell Miller.
Really, there isn’t a difference. One is an indicted and convicted felon, the other is, so far, unidicted.
thing of it his...I’d put the “felon’s” integrity up against
Obama’s...any day of the week
Why didn’t we run this felon in the republican primaries? Damn the GOPe!
Another state he carried that he won't again.
I like the fact that this is embarrassing for Obama, but it’s more than that.
The vote for Judd was an attempt to send a message. In the sense that this was a vote about coal, it means that even Democrats know who’s screwing everything up.
It means even Democrats no longer blame Bush. It means the economy is going to be issue number one in the 2012 election, as much as the Obama camp would wish otherwise. It means the polling that says “but he’s still liked personnally” won’t make any difference come November.
I know it’s just West Virginia, but this has to frighten the daylights out of Obama’s string-pullers, and will cost him even more donations, because after this, he can no longer be considered the odds-on favorite by those who write the checks.
In the meantime, let's take down every democrap incumbent at the federal, state and local level!!
Yet even on some “conservative” tv shows they have on dem guests and they all talk about that Obama is winning in all the polls, which he isn’t. I observed this on the Lou Dobbs show last night.
Joe Trippi was saying well it’s true everything sucks, but Obama leads in every poll in every battleground state, and leads by 7 overall. Dobbs seemed to go along with this. Saw the same thing on CNN (not surprising there).
Local Charleston/Huntington news reporting WV results:
Amazing not 1 person called him out on it.
I’LL TAKE HIM!!!!!
Better the criminal you know than the one you don't...
One is in jail repaying his debt to society, while the other is destroying freedom in the USA, and whose administration could not withstand a RICO investigation.
(I'm sure they took any shoe laces from him like they do all prisoners.....hmmmm).
At least there are no tattoos on his face. He has learned something about getting jobs.
Yes, vote out all incumbents, Democrat or Republican. Support the CPA. Every CongressWeasel should have term limits, 2 terms, one in office and one in prison.
A convicted felon vs. an unindicted felon. What’s the difference?
Judd just ticked up to 41% as close to 100% of the precincts have reported.
It is now Obama 59, Judd 41
He’s no more of a felon than Bobby Rush, Charlie Rangel, Kwame Kilpatrick, etc
At least we know more about his background than Obama.
Consider the case of Jamie Gorelick...Destroys the housing market, commits fraud on paper, pays herself $25 million for doing so. And oh yes, puts in place “The Gorelick wall” which helps 911 to occur. And if that isn’t bad enough, Democrats put her on the 911 commission to investigate why 911 happened. In essence, rubbing it in. So we got 911 and the housing collapse on her resume. Jail time - zero.
I bet Judd can produce a real birth certificate and can easily demonstrate he is a natural born US citizen. I am also certain through publicly available records we can know far more about his past than we can ever know about the current occupant of the White House.
It’s the Koch brothers I tell you. They put him up to it just to embarrass our President. ;-)
Obama’s ego must be crushed and his hair is on fire. LOL... this guy can’t even vote, yet he’s giving Obama a run for his money.
GO RUDD GO......
Oops... I meant, GO JUDD GO...... !
And this is why they call it “WEST-BY GOD-VIRGINIA!!!”
Almost heaven.....West Virginia!.....
