The special election for New York's 26th congressional district seat โ€” the one left vacant by our beloved Craigslist Congressman, former Rep. Chris Lee โ€” is 12 days away, and the race is rapidly becoming hilarious. Mostly because of the rich, 78-year-old buzzard running as a third-party candidate on the "Tea Party" line, Jack Davis, whose healthy poll numbers could help deny Republicans a victory in this extremely conservative district. So who is this guy, and why is he slapping cameras?
