Dallas-area radio station KERA has landed a new interview with controversial Texas State Board of Education candidate Mary Lou Bruner, in which she explains her accusation that President Obama paid for a drug habit by working as a gay prostitute.
Here comes the “logic”:
In one Facebook post, she said Obama once prostituted himself. It’s a logical conclusion, she says, since he admitted to smoking pot as a young man.
“If he’s on drugs, then how did he pay for them?” she says. “There’s two ways that people on welfare pay for drugs — they prostitute themselves or they steal.”
Bruner’s prostitution accusation is evolving. At first, Bruner explained, the president must have been a prostitute because his support of equal rights for LGBT people shows he has a “soft spot for homosexuals.” Now the explanation is that the president admitted to smoking marijuana, ergo he must have been a) on welfare, and b) there’s only two ways people on welfare pay for drugs, one of them being prostitution. At least she hasn’t accused the president of stealing … yet.
You can listen to the KERA story here, which includes Bruner explaining why she’s running for the SBOE and why she believes religion should play a larger role in public education.
Bruner faces Keven Ellis in the May 24 Republican primary runoff, with the winner advancing to face Democrat Amanda Rudolph in November.
