Portland Patch wrote:Texas Candidate Who Claimed Obama Was Gay Hooker Loses Runoff Election

[…]
The eyes of Texas were on East Texas Tuesday night focused on a race for a relatively obscure post that may have otherwise gone largely unnoticed until Bruner's entry in the primary contest and ultimate runoff election.

The reason: Bruner's unconventional beliefs.

The woman who came this close to being elected to the State Board of Education -- the government body that sets curriculum standards and adopts textbooks for the state's 5 million-plus school students -- believes (as she has stated both out loud in public, with people around, and on her prolific string of social media posts):

– President Obama was a gay prostitute in his youth, an occupation he took up to finance a drug addiction;
– Climate change is a hoax orchestrated by communists to undermine capitalism;
– Democrats engineered the assassination of John F. Kennedy to allow his successor, Lyndon B. Johnson, to enact a socialist agenda;
– Pre-K programs at schools are designed to indoctrinate children into multiculturalism, socialism and homosexuality;
– The Affordable Care Act is part of a plot by the United Nations to take over the U.S.;
– Baby dinosaurs were among the animals on Noah's Ark.

Despite those interesting theories, Tea Party activist and former schoolteacher Bruner had been highly favored to win the election after nearly having won it against political rival Keven Ellis in the March primary.

A Republican Lawmaker Wants To Turn In Students Who Don't Speak English To Save Money

A Republican lawmaker in Oklahoma has a unique proposal to help fix the state's massive $900 million budget hole: Turn over the state's thousands of non-English speaking students to Immigration and Customs Enforcement.

Unfortunately for him, it's unconstitutional.

Rep. Mike Ritze told News9 on Wednesday that the newly-formed Republican Platform Caucus believes that the struggling state could save $60 million in tax credits by nixing what they estimate to be 82,000 non-English speaking students.

“Identify them and then turn them over to ICE to see if they truly are citizens, and do we really have to educate non-citizens?” Ritze asked.

Yes, we do. In 1982 the Supreme Court ruled that states can't bar students from a public education based on their immigration status, as noted by Oklahoma schools Superintendent Joy Hofmeister, a fellow Republican, who called Ritze's idea “utterly shameful.”

Hard to call them schools really, more of a place to employ adults and babysit children.

And only $16,000 per year per student!
