After we first published Mary Lou Bruner’s social media posts, the Republican Texas State Board of Education candidate out of District 9 defended her comments in a couple of ways. She began by saying, on Facebook, that she was taken out of context. What possible context there could be for insisting that the president of the United States once paid for drugs by working as gay prostitute is beyond us. But here’s how Bruner explained the prostitution comment to TV station KTRE:
“I don’t know, I guess I’m assuming it was true; you’re assuming some people assume that it’s false, I mean, who knows.”
Bruner then told the Texas Tribune that she was unapologetic and proud of everything she has said. It is odd, then, that she would start deleting the posts and has now taken her Facebook profile private. But no worries, we have more of her posts.
Here are some highlights, taken before Bruner closed her account to the general public.

Mary Lou ‘Obama Was a Gay Prostitute’ Bruner — One Step Closer to a Seat on the Texas State Board of EducationShare
Mary Lou Bruner thinks President Obama was a gay prostitute, climate change is a Marxist hoax and evolution is propaganda for atheism. And now Bruner is one step closer to sitting on the board that decides what more than 5 million kids learn in Texas public schools (and strongly influences what textbooks are used in schools across the country).

Mary Lou Bruner, a Republican candidate running for the Texas State Board of Education seat in East Texas, is standing by her claims that President Obama is a drug addict who funded his habit by being a gay prostitute. From an article today on the far-right blog Breitbart: Read More
We've already told you about Mary Lou "President Obama Was a Gay Prostitute" Bruner, who is seeking the Republican nomination for the District 9 seat on the Texas State Board of Education. The political activist and retired teacher appears to have the support of a number of religious-right and tea-party activists. But a candidate forum hosted by the Texoma Patriots last week in Sherman showed that Bruner isn't the only religious-righter in the East Texas race. Read More
We told you last week about the outrageous things Texas State Board of Education candidate Mary Lou Bruner publicly claims on her Facebook page. Among them: that President Obama was a gay prostitute so that he could fund his drug addiction, that Democrats conspired to assassinate President Kennedy, that evolution “is a religious philosophy … supporting the religion of Atheism,” and that climate change is a hoax Marxists are using to take over the world.
Well, Bruner isn’t happy with TFN. From her Facebook page on Wednesday:
The Texas Freedom Network’s name is very misleading. Texas Freedom Network is controlled by radical liberals who believe Freedom of Speech and the other rights listed in the Bill of Rights are only for liberals and progressives, not for conservative Americans. TFN believes conservative Americans should allow the liberals to have their way on every issue because if liberals do not get their way they throw a fit.
I will gladly wear the TFN “Badge of Dishonor” which the radical liberal organization awarded me for my testimony before the State Board of Education condemning Islamic bias in Texas textbooks. I stand by my testimony and by my belief that… Read More
