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.”
