And You Thought Electing a Convicted Crack Smoker to Public Office Was Weird

Only the city that keeps electing Marion Barry to public office could pull this off:

Washington Mayor Adrian Fenty lost the Democratic primary, but the city's Republicans want him as their candidate.

The D.C. Board of Elections and Ethics announced Friday that Fenty won the Republican primary as a write-in, but Fenty has said repeatedly that he has no interest in being the GOP candidate in November. The Republican party was not running any candidate in the mayor's race, but a total of 822 Republicans wrote in Fenty's name.

On a totally separate note, why didn't the Tea Party come up with a candidate in DC?
