Unofficial results show that a former New Mexico mayor who called President Barack Obama "the carnal manifestation of evil" and said Obama's election was part of a CIA conspiracy has been elected to his former job.
The 53-year-old Lansford recently gained national attention after the newspaper reported his ties to a fringe group ATLAH Media Network in New York. Lansford participated in ATLAH's mock treason trial of Obama.
The city clerk says Lansford will be sworn in Monday.
The eastern New Mexico city of 38,000 is located along the Texas border.
Lansford also said he doesn’t believe his views on the president will affect federal funding needed to complete the estimated $500 million Ute Water Project — a plan to pipe water from the Ute Reservoir in Quay County to Clovis, Portales and other communities.
