In Oklahoma, Sally Kern keeps it classy (not, of course) right til the end

Via The Advocate, Sally Kern ended her campaign against Brittany Novotny just like you’d expect from one of the nation’s proudest and most vocal LGBT bashers:

Oklahoma state representative Sally Kern and her challenger Brittany Novotny don’t agree on much, but neither supports one of the more contentious issues in their state this Election Day: State Question 744.

Novotny’s disapproval on the ballot question, which would raise per-student education spending in a way she does not agree with, was never made public. However, Kern’s last-minute mailer, sent to voters over the weekend, not only claims the challenger supports SQ744 but points out several times that she is transgender.

“Last I checked, bearing false witness is in violation of the 10 commandments,” Novotny said. “This kind of false representation of my position on an important local issue shows that Representative Kern is not only out of touch and ineffective but also just plain dishonest. The voters of HD 84 deserve a representative who will focus on jobs, education and transportation — not more political games.”

The mailer also pointsjavascript:void(0) out that Novotny is unmarried, chair of the LGBT Caucus of Oklahoma, and supports marriage equality as defining traits. Kern, on the other hand “supports traditional marriage (between a man and women [sic])” and touts that she is the wife of a preacher.

Wait…”a man and women”?? Is that really a mistake on Kern’s mailer — or does she support polygamy? I mean, that is “traditional” marriage for some.

Brittany’s website is here. I sure hope she wins, but she deserves our gratitude for taking on Kern.
