If you thought Kansas Secretary of State Chris Biggs' latest political maneuver of stamping a comically lovely photo of himself on the end of a voter education ad smacked of desperation, just wait. It gets sadder.

Biggs, now facial hairless, says he saw a TV report of him with a mustache,
and it got him thinking about ways he could exploit his fuzzy face days of
yore. People who want him to keep it smooth, he suggests, should donate to his campaign in numbers that start with odd numbers, like $700; fans of the Wilford Brimley look should donate with even numbers $400. He vows to abide by the results.
Now Biggs' backers are being forced to figure out if $0 is an odd of even number.
