GOP Hopeful Courts "Dead People" Vote

Guy named Murray Sabrin is running for something in Jersey, and claims an endorsement from newspaper tycoon Frank Gannett.  Who died in 1957.

There's a bit more to the story.  Apparently, Gannett papers in NJ ran poll results showing that Sabrin is 20 points behind in whatever race he is running; he claims that he's the front-runner.  Yeah, sure, Murray.  And we're the freakin' Pope over here.

But we do like the idea of endorsements by the dead.  If old Father Anonymous ever runs for anything, he's going to seek endorsements from Charles Porterfield Krauth, George Bernard Shaw, and somebody else with a middle name.
