House candidate loses a supporter he never really had.

Mediaite has picked up on a story that I think is slightly funny about a candidate for the House of Representatives named B.J. Lawson who claimed Morgan Freeman had narrated a campaign ad for him.  And then Morgan Freeman said it wasn’t really his voice.  And then a bunch of people called each other liars.  Or something.

My main interest in this story is that this is my House district!  I voted against this guy!  There was even a supporter of his at my polling place.  On the way out, he said “Thanks for voting, even if you don’t look like you voted for my candidate.”  Keen eye, sir.

  1. That sounds just like him! If it’s an imitator, I’m impressed. I doubt Freeman would be naive enough to narrate a political ad without knowing the guy, but I guess weirder things have happened.

  2. I agree, Chris, it is a great impression. It must just be an impression, though, because I can’t imagine Freeman would have any interest in getting involved in some random N.C. House race.

    Although, as you said, weirder things have happened.
