‘Lizard People’ voter comes forward

You knew it was only a matter of time; MPR scores the “get” of the post-election season — an interview with the self-proclaimed “Lizard People” voter.

Bemidji 25-year-old Lucas Davenport sounds convincing — he and a bud were joking around about the lousiness of the candidates, thought about writing “Revolution,” and decided “Lizard People” was funnier.

Lucas, you were right, but your Democrat buddies will be mad you also filled in the Franken oval and screwed him out of a vote.

By the way, Davenport did provide a handwriting sample.

Update: Here’s the audio:

    Lucas didn’t really say, in your story, if he meant that to be a vote for franken.

    So what’s the deal with THIS?? The STRIB the other day (in an article about this hilarious and thought-provoking high-criticism political joke) had copies of TWO ballots from Beltrami County with handwriting nearly indistunguishable between the two Lizard People inscriptions…..Did no one else see that?? I was waiting for someone on MPR or in the press to ask if he had voted twice
