Rep. Kerry Bentivolio in the News Again

For 2014, G.O.P.’s Challenges Stem From Within.  (The New York Times, 11/10/2013)

Excerpt:    On the other side of Michigan, Mr. Bentivolio is an accidental congressman, elected last year after the popular Republican incumbent, Thaddeus McCotter, resigned suddenly because most of the signatures his campaign had collected to put him on the ballot were proved fraudulent. 

Mr. Bentivolio, who once raised reindeer, starred in a homemade movie that accused George W. Bush of planning the Sept. 11 attacks and once said in court he sometimes could not tell whether he was Kerry Bentivolio or Santa Claus. But as the only Republican left on the ballot, he won.

Actually, he won the general election because he received the most votes.
