WV Primary: Obama defeats prison inmate 59-41

Rachel Weiner has this post at the WaPo's political blog.  It was so wild I had to double-check to make sure I wasn't actually reading The Onion.

Keith Judd, who is serving a 17 1/2-year prison sentence for extortion at the Federal Correctional Institution in Texarkana, Texas, took 41 percent of the vote in West Virginia's Democratic primary Tuesday night -- 72,000 votes to Obama's 106,000. He would qualify for convention delegates, if anyone had signed up to be a Judd delegate. (No one did.)
