Following closely on the heels of last week’s Halloween night “Exe-boo-tion” in Texas, a special Election Day “Elect-ecution” has just been carried out in Oklahoma. Garry Thomas Allen was given a lethal injection there tonight for shooting his fiancé to death in 1986.
Allen has been up for execution several times before, and has always ordered a large meat lover’s pizza and a Pepsi as his last meal. In the spirit of Election Day, some people thought Allen might flip-flop on his last meal choice--but he didn't! It was pizza and Pepsi all the way.
Inmates in Oklahoma must order take-out food for their last meal, with a spending limit of $15.
When asked if he had any last words, Allen rambled incoherently for several minutes—once again keeping the night’s political theme alive—and he even mentioned Barack Obama and Mitt Romney several times. He ended his statement with the words, “What? Huh?” which some say mirrors the confusion of many voters this election season.
