Alabama Senate Write-In Candidates Include Adam Levine, Billy Joel, And Even Santa

 

Close

Adam Levine of Maroon 5 almost became the senator-elect of the state of Alabama. 

Sort of. The band vocalist and The Voice coach was among the celebrities whose names were unwittingly included in the state's special election. Alabama recently released the names of the 23,000 write-in candidates that include several celebrities and fictional characters. 

Kardashian For Senate

Some residents did not like their options so hundreds of voters in Alabama wrote their own choices as their representatives. 

An unnamed voter thinks that Levine, a native of California, would be a better politician than Democrat Doug Jones or Republican Roy Moore. "Piano Man," Billy Joel, also received one vote from an anonymous fan. 

Reality television stars and comedians were also popular choices. Kardashian matriarch, Kris Jenner, and Phil Robertson of Duck Dynasty both received one vote each. Someone also wrote the name of the host, Ellen DeGeneres, on the ballot. 

Other political figures were also included like former presidents George W. Bush and Bill Clinton. A few people from the notoriously red state also cast their votes for U.S. President Donald J. Trump. 

Some voters decided to let Jesus take the wheel. The son of God received quite a few votes. 

Other votes went to fictional characters such as Bruce Wayne, Scooby-Doo, Kermit the Frog, Santa Claus, SpongeBob SquarePants, Bugs Bunny, Bridget Jones, and Boo Radley from To Kill a Mockingbird. 

One voter believes that Alabama deserves the best candidate, so they nominated a good boy, "Jackson, my dog."

Democratic Victory

In a surprising turn of events, Jones triumphed over Moore in one of the reddest states in the country. He is the first Democrat to win in the state in about 25 years. 

Jones defeated Moore who was recently embroiled in numerous sexual misconduct allegations. In a story published last month by The Washington Post, several women came forward and revealed that the politician made unwanted sexual advances while they were in their teens and he was in his 30s. 

In a statement, Moore denied all allegations.

"These allegations are completely false and are a desperate political attack by the National Democrat Party and the Washington Post on this campaign," the candidate said. He also dismissed the report as "fake news."

After the reports came out, more women accused Moore of sexual harassment. One woman claimed that the Republican candidate tried to force her to give him oral sex when she was 16 years old.
