Sally Kern Gets a Slap (On the Wrist)

Despite earlier resistance to a full reprimand, the OK House successfully voted yesterday to censure Sally Kern for her none-too-subtle racism. The motion was brought by Democrat Mike Shelton and led to a second apology from Kern, read on the House floor.

It should also be noted that not everybody was on board with the motion. Republican Paul Wesselhoft saw it as an affront to the Christian admonishment to forgive and Randy Grau is worried that punishing racists will lead to Big Brother.

It’s not as good as a resignation but it’s as good as we’re going to get. She’s likely to be re-elected by the bigots in her district but she’s term limited in 2016. Unless, of course, a true progressive mounts a credible challenge… anybody?
