The 2014 Winter Games: Now with Infinitely Less Intrigue

Remember Andrei Lugovoi, the man Scotland Yard suspects of murdering a former KGB agent and the man who was also thinking of running for mayor of the host city of the 2014 Winter Olympics? Well, he’s dropping out of the Sochi mayor’s race because of “low support.” From the Reuters story:

The LDPR, which last month said Lugovoy was its most likely candidate, dropped him Tuesday in favor of a local politician after Sochi residents said they would prefer to be represented by someone from their region.

Note that the good people of Sochi’s distaste for Lugovoi has nothing to do with the likelihood that he killed a man with radioactive poison.
