Anti-Gay OK State Rep Faces Transgender Challenger

Jim Burroway

June 9th, 2010

Oklahoma state representative Sally Kern, who has called gay people more dangerous to the country than terrorists, will face a transgender opponent, attorney Brittany Novotny (pictured), in the general election for the Oklahoma City seat this fall. Novotny, the state’s first known transgender candidate, filed papers to run Tuesday.

Both Novotny and Kern say that neither will make Novotny’s gender identity a campaign issue. We’ll just see how long Kern stays classy.

“We’ll just see how long Kern stays classy.”

Jim, if I might hazard a guess, I’d say “until about three minutes before you posted this.”

“We’ll just see how long Kern stays classy.”

Are you implying that:

1. She knows the meaning of the word “classy”…

2. The behavior is within her range…

3. She is willing and capable of maintaining a modicum of class?

If you are, then you are giving her a lot more credit than the average homophobe would.

Go Brittany! And may the Victory Fund give her everything she needs to defeat that embarrassing Sally Kerns!

Said, with love… she will never win. Kern’s district is a special place, even for Oklahoma.

But if I knew anyone who lived there, I would tell them to vote for Novotny.
