“Enough about Arnold, Gray, and Cruz!” you say. “How is Gary Coleman doing?” BrendanLoy.com is here to give you the answer!
With 33.5% of the precincts reporting, Coleman is in tenth place with 3,325 votes (0.2%), just ahead of porn star Mary Cook (a.k.a. “Mary Carey”), who has 2,872 (also 0.2%) votes for eleventh place.
Who else is in the Top 10, you ask? Well, after Schwarzenegger (1,330,992 votes, 50.3%), of course there’s the top tier: Bustamante (805,829, 30.5%), conservative Republican Tom McClintock (343,728, 13.0%), Green Party candidate Peter Camejo (58,809, 2.3%), dropped-out independent Arianna Huffington (26,310, 1.0%), and dropped-out Republican Peter Ueberroth (10,204, 0.4%).
Nothing too nutty there. But then in seventh place we have Hustler publisher Larry Flynt (4,913, 0.2%). Woohoo! :) Let’s hear it for California’s porn obsession!
Dropped-out conservative Republican and 2002 gubernatorial loser Bill Simon is eighth (3,842, 0.2%). But then comes my favorite: the ninth-place finisher, George B. Schwartzman, an independent whose 3,701 votes probably came mostly from confused voters who saw “Schwartz…” and thought they were voting for Arnold!!!
