Rep. Paul Broun’s Biggest Challenger In The Election? Charles Darwin

Hulton Archive

Paul Broun represents the college town of Athens, GA, and ran unopposed for his seat. That doesn’t mean, however, that he didn’t have a challenger. Several challengers, in fact.

Broun has stirred controversy for his views on scientific matters such as evolution, so when voters went to the booth, some of them expressed their displeasure by voting, for example, for Charles Darwin, who collected nearly 4000 votes. Other challengers to Broun included Jesus Christ, Batman, Bill Nye, Cookie Monster, Hello Kitty, the Mars Curiosity Rover, Bugs Bunny, and “Anyone Else”.

None of these candidates were registered, or really had the support to beat Broun’s over 200,000 votes from his district. On the other hand, we’re pretty sure that if Batman decides to go for office, Broun might be looking for work.
