Sally Kerns Exaggerates Death Threats 
14th-Mar-2008 01:00 am
Jim at Box Turtle Bulletin has the goods:
Oklahoma state rep. Sally Kern’s homophobic rant earned her several thousand emails and phone calls, most of which I’m sure aren’t very civil. Tuesday, Kern alluded to some of them containing death threats, prompting an investigation by the Oklahoma State Bureau of Investigations. What did they find?
[OSBI spokeswoman Jessica] Brown said Tuesday, “There are a lot of e-mails to the representative that say, ‘You ought to die,’ rather than, ‘I am going to kill you.’

“I wouldn’t characterize them as death threats,” she said.
Never mind what law enforcement officials say. Our friends from Focus on the Family’s CitizenLink are undeterred. It’s like they just can’t help it.
Here's a petition to get Sally Kern out of Office.

Well I don't want her to die but I would like to see her reprimanded for condoning hate crimes through her influence. There is a time and a place for debate, and that is not the time and place for this type of debate (allowing that there SHOULD be one).

She holds power, and with that power comes responsibility. A responsibility to protect ALL the individuals in her state, not just the straight ones. She then has a responsibility to the Constitution, in upholding it's principles, and protecting the rights given to citizens through it.

If she could handle all that, then she can start pushing for party politics.
