GOVERNOR FALLIN AND LOCAL PARTY HOST FUNDRAISER REVOLVING AROUND THE KLAN 

Former Chair of The NGA Is Special Guest at Local Republican Fundraiser Discussing the KKK


OKLAHOMA CITY—On August 23, Mary Fallin, the Republican Candidate for Governor of Oklahoma and former Chair of the National Governor’s Association will headline the Garvin County Republican Party’s Annual Fundraiser where the featured topic of conversation will be, the Ku Klux Klan.

In an appalling attempt to solidify her base, Republican Governor Mary Fallin is scheduled to attend the event.

“This is an apparent attempt to reverse her falling poll numbers. Does Republican Chairman Dave Weston and Mary Fallin support this type of event?, “ asked Democratic Party Chairman Wallace Collins.

On campaign material paid for by the Garvin County Republican Party it invites attendees to, “Discuss issues with fellow conservatives and find out some things that you may not know about the NRA, Planned Parenthood, Klu Klux Klan, and other organizations.”

“This is a disgusting attempt from the Governor to energize her base in the state of Oklahoma,” said Chairman Wallace Collins. “At some point, our friends in the Chamber of Commerce are going to realize that this type of politics is not good for our state, not good for our businesses and not good for the future of Oklahoma.”

DNC Chair Debbie Wasserman Schultz’s Statement on the Passing of Dr. Maya Angelou

For Immediate Release

May 28, 2014

Contact: DNC Press, 202-863-8148

Washington, DC – DNC Chair Debbie Wasserman Schultz released the following statement on the passing of Dr. Maya Angelou:

“I was deeply saddened to learn of the passing of Dr. Maya Angelou.

“Earlier this year, as I watched Dr. Angelou recite some of her greatest works, it was clear that though her voice was weak, her keen insight and wit were stronger than ever. She exuded the strength of character that has enabled her words and example to buoy the spirit of others in difficult times.

“It was Dr. Angelou who said, ‘The first time someone shows you who they are, believe them.’ For decades, Dr. Angelou showed us who she was through literature, teaching, performing arts and activism. Her selflessness and kindness came through in her willingness to share her story and to tell the story of others.

“I know that I express the sentiment of many when I say that Dr. Maya Angelou’s voice and spirit will be greatly missed,  but I am grateful that her words will live on for generations to come.”
