    I have to give this Frank Moore guy lots of credit.He’s listed as a write-in candidate in 25 states.As far as I know he has no party organization backing him up.
    Maybe that’s the secret nobody to tell him it can’t be done.

    Wikipedia tells us this Santa Claus legally changed his name from something or other a few years ago and is actually running a platform on helping kids in some state out in the east. But you can’t always trust Wikipedia.

    If that’s true, he must be the least clever guy I’ve heard of yet.
