There is a character named Heck Davis in my regionally celebrated (very regional, not very celebrated) serial, The Fledge Chronicles, who makes hay of news stories like this for his conspiracy tabloid.
From a WYFF4.com news story concerning U.S. Senate candidate (in South Carolina) Alvin Greene, who won his party’s primary and will now take on Senator Jim DeMint…

It’s not something a typical person would bring up. That’s something that could happen, that makes sense. It’s not a joke.”
