Competition No.3 - We Have CONFUSION!

 Thanks for voting, everyone! We got over 50 responses! However, there seems to be a bit of a problem...
A user named Thomas BU had submitted a piece imitating Scott Joplin. When voting started, he advertised his piece in multiple groups, encouraging everyone to vote for him. I hadn't stated any rules about promoting yourself, so I just let it go. However, his piece ended up getting over 60% of the votes. Also, many of those 50+ votes seem to be connected with non-existent MuseScore users (although, strangely, some of the fake accounts voted for pieces other than Thomas BU's).
To make it even more confusing, Thomas BU has deleted his account and his original entry comment.

I'm unsure as to what to do now, so definitely give me ideas.
I am sorry it ended up like this, and I'll try to prevent it in future contests.
