Darwin Gets 4K Write-Ins vs. Creationist Lawmaker
Charles Darwin earned almost 4,000 write-in votes in one Georgia county against a congressman who denounced evolution and other scientific theories as "lies straight from the pit of hell." The symbolic votes in Athens-Clarke County on Tuesday were against Republican Rep. Paul Broun, who was running unopposed. (He beat Darwin by about 13,000 votes in the county, reports the Athens Banner-Herald.) Broun gave a speech to a church group in September lambasting evolution, embryology, and the Big Bang theory.
