Vote for Thomas Jefferson

TOPEKA, Kan. (AP) - July 24, 2012

Of course, it's not the Thomas Jefferson who wrote the Declaration of Independence and was the third president.

This Thomas Jefferson used to be Jack Talbert. He's legally changed his name.

Talbert-now-Jefferson says it's a tribute to his idol.

Jefferson tells the Topeka Capital-Journal he hopes to win some votes with his new name, too.

Jefferson is the Libertarian candidate for Congress in Kansas' 4th District.
