Governor Fallin and legislative leaders must speak out against State Rep. Kern’s dangerous extremism
Governor Fallin, Speaker of the House Kris Steele and Senate President Pro Tempore Brian Bingman have remained silent so far.
“The silence of Governor Fallin and Oklahoma’s legislative leadership is deafening, particularly given the number of people we now see calling on them to speak out,” said HRC President Joe Solmonese. “Enough is enough. Sally Kern has a long track record of outrageously slandering LGBT Americans, ethnic and religious groups, and women. It’s time for Oklahoma’s leaders to stand up to her bigotry and hold her accountable for her remarks.”
HRC is calling on its members and supporters to keep the pressure up on Governor Fallin, Speaker Steele and President Pro Tempore Bingman, and to rally friends and family to join in taking action. For the latest, visit www.hrc.org/callitout.
