Hey West Virginia, you’ll get yours my pretty, and your little federal inmate too
Oh man, has there ever been a bigger LMAO than this?
Obama Loses West Virginia Delegates To Prison Inmate
An obscure federal prison inmate gave President Obama an unexpected run for his money in the West Virginia Democratic Primary Tuesday, highlighting the deep dislike for the president in the Appalachian heartland.
With 96% of the precincts reporting Tuesday night, Keith Judd was holding steady at 41% of the vote and had won ten counties.
Judd is also known as federal prison inmate Number 11593-051 at the Beaumont Federal Correctional Institution in Beaumont, Texas, where Judd is serving a 210-month sentence for extortion and making threats at the University of New Mexico in 1999.
According to both state and national Democratic Party rules, Keith Russell Judd is entitled to receive at least one delegate from West Virginia for the Democratic National Convention in Charlotte, N.C. because he received 15% of the vote.
Judd ran particularly strong in West Virginia’s coal country, carrying the labor stronghold of Mingo County, among others.
The RNC has a research page devoted to Obama’s challenger, Federal Inmate No. 11593-051.
And take note of this:
Obama already had it out for West Virginia.
Just you wait.
Update: DrewM at Ace of Spades HQ has a pertinent observation:
Democrats are pretty mad about two states today, North Carolina over Amendment One and West Virginia over the felon vote. Keep in mind a few facts: Both states have Democratic governors, 3 or their 4 Senators are Democrats, Obama won North Carolina and picked that state to host his renomination convention.
Damn Rightwing nutters!

“Judd-Blagojevich, 2012; We tell you upfront we’re crooks!”
Ha! Thanks for the laugh, persecutor
And W.V. has that dirty old Reality Energy.
Old and busted.
Whereas Kulhifornia is the seat of Delusional Energy.
New and Green.
(Actually, Kulhifornia has a lot of Reality Energy too, but it has a delusional government that won’t use it.)
I bet his uber-leftist, sycophant sister, Ashley Judd, is really mad.
Democrats can’t say jack about this. The answer to their nonsense is two names: Marion Barry. alcee Hastings.
Well, West Virginia, you just got added to the “disgusting and shameful” list, by the DOJ
Judd actually beat Obama in several districts last night. Guess what industry “fuels” the local economy in those districts?
This is another “Mourning In America” for the Collective.
Bad news all around for them, including in Wish-consin, where Walker was stronger than nine acres of garlic.
Reality may be asserting itself in America once more.
I am a little superstitious so I am knocking wood as I agree with you. Heh, don’t let the cheekbones fool you, I am Irish not Native American. But yeah, looks like reality might just be asserting itself in America.
I have the high cheekbones of my Viking ancestors who settled in the Highlands of Scotland.
Funny how well distributed that skeletal trait is across the world. May have something to do with an anthropological sign of some-thing-or-other connected with breeding/hunting/fighting success.
And yet, if you erroneously concluded that said skeletal trait was proof of your Native American ancestry you would be qualified to teach at Harvard. Go figure 🙂
Not qualified, but PREFERRED among the qualified. As in, “discrimination”.
But in my case, NO amount of cheekbonage…or actual Indian blood…could suffice. I am a Conservative, and need not apply. (Besides, I did not attend an Ivy League law school.)
Warren didn’t attend an Ivy League law school either. Liberal ideology plus a heaping load of “lore” trumps all else I suppose.
I’m Sicilian with high cheekbones, from the Pastafazool tribe.
There’s a Scotsman in the woodpile.
Pretty much everywhere on teh globe.
Oh Noes! I have a choice here.
You mean Solyndra et al?
The coal industry, the one that assisted in building America?
The West Virgina results show that OPERATION COUNTERACT is fully operational.
You guys can thank Professor Jacobson for spreading the word!!!
PS! MMore proof OPERATION COUNTERACT is fully operational: 21% of North Carolina DEMOCRATIC voters chose “NO PREFERENCE”.
I ’bout spewed Diet Coke out my nose then I read about this. 😀
So West Virginia Dems had to decide between a crook and a convicted crook? Figures.
Maybe Obama and AxelRoadhouse can use this: this ‘Chicago’-crime style federal prisoner can be used as Julia’s father – someone who wasn’t given his “fair share”.
“Oh man, has there ever been a bigger LMAO than this?”
Funniest thing I’ve read today.
[…] little bit of fun news via Legal Insurrection: Fun fact of the day: @richardmourdock [email protected] by a bigger margin than @BarackObama beat […]
Obama got less than 80% of the Democrat primary vote in North Carolina. Over 20% chose the “unspecified Democrat” option on the ballot.
[…] a guy in jail in Texas gets over 40% of the Democrat vote for president in the West Virginia primary and carries 10 counties, […]
If anything merits a “Get out of jail free” card, it has to be this. I could understand losing 40% of the vote to a Nelson Mandela type, but this guy??
Just as Obama planned it, our local power station has stopped consuming West Virginia’s coal.
After crushing jobs in the state why did he run at all? The results are not only embarrassing but will be influencial in other states against him.
I can only pray this means that the two Dem senators will be in the unemployment line but I doubt it. Yellow Dog Democrats are alive and well here in WV. OTOH, I found the results hilarious last night. Everyone says they didn’t really care who the other guy was, they were just voting against Obama.
I don’t think the DNC will allow any delegates won by Keith Judd to be seated at the convention, but still, this has gotta hurt!

[…] Tuesday nights election results in West Virginia has a convicted felon getting over 40% of the vote in the DEMOCRATIC PRIMARY and garnering at least a delegate. LMAO, indeed. […]
