Proof of Random Voting

In the Democratic primary for the U.S. House seat currently occupied by Republican Raul Labrador, there were two candidates: Cynthia Clinkingbeard, and Jimmy Farris.


United States Representative, District 1
 DEMCynthia Clinkingbeard4,72146.9%
 DEMJimmy Farris5,35553.1%
It was a close race, wasn't it?  Clinkingbeard's vote totals are especially impressive because she has been locked up for much of the start of the campaign after waving a gun at employees of a Staples, and generally evidencing some mental problems.  Farris wasn't exactly in danger of being mistaken for a serious candidate--but at least he wasn't famous for being dangerously crazy.  More evidence that voting is often a pretty ignorant process.
