So, Pennsylvania elected a dead guy last night (no, not him... someone else)
No, this isn't a John Fetterman joke. And no, it's not a joke about your typical Democrat voter. The state of Pennsylvania reelected State Rep. Anthony "Tony" DeLuca. He's been dead for a month.
You heard me. On October 9th of this year, eighty-five-year-old Anthony "Tony" DeLuca died after a battle with lymphoma. He was the longest-serving representative in the entire Keystone State. And last night, while having been dead for a month, he was re-elected to serve one final term as state rep.
Pennsylvania House Democrats said in a tweet that while they're incredibly saddened by the loss (of life), "we are proud to see the voters to continue to show their confidence in him and his commitment to Democratic values by re-electing him posthumously." A special election will follow.
DeLuca didn't have a Republican opponent. His Green Party opponent, Queonia "Zarah" Livingston, ran on a leftist platform of "environmental justice," "ending the war on drugs," and "reducing gun violence." Thus proving the age-old adage that, even in Pennsylvania, voters say better dead than red.
Though that still doesn't explain John Fetterman winning.

It harkens back to an episode of The West Wing, where Will Bailey (Joshua Melina) elected a dead guy to congress. Only that was fiction. In reality, we can elect a corpsicle to elected office in Pennsylvania but not Dr. Oz. That's Election Night 2022 in all it's glory.
