Leonardo Da Vinci Defeats Burt Reynolds in Special Election

In what would have been the biggest upset in Tournament of Genius history, Burt Reynolds held a commanding 73%-27% lead over Leonardo Da Vinci last night.

Rather than get into a whole hanging chad mess, we held a special election, and the Reynolds magic ran out.
