Candidate croons on election-styled song



Bill Clinton played his sax. Mike Huckabee his guitar. And now congressional challenger John Russell is showing off his guitar and singer/songwriting "skills."

His campaign's latest e-mail alleging unconfirmed election shenanigans includes a link to a YouTube video where Russell sings a version of Marshall Tucker Band's Can't You See. Except he changed the words to "Can't You See (What that incumbent been doing to me)" and appears sitting in front of two campaign signs. He changes up the lyrics in a few other places, but it's unclear what he's actually singing.

Russell faces three-term Republican incumbent Ginny Brown-Waite in November.
