Kern’s Death Threat Exaggeration

Someone’s ploy for public sympathy has fallen apart.

An Oklahoma lawmaker alleged that gay activists had sent Sally Kern life threatening emails following publication of her anti-gay audio. Now that the Oklahoma State Bureau of Investigation has started sifting through the letters, however, Kern’s setting the public record straight:

A fellow lawmaker contacted the OSBI on Monday and suggested that agents go through the e-mails, some of which might be threatening, OSBI spokeswoman Jessica Brown said.

Kern said Monday that she had not received death threats. On Tuesday, she said, “It’s changed,” but she did not elaborate.

Brown said Tuesday, “There are a lot of e-mails to the representative that say, ‘You ought to die,’ rather than, ‘I am going to kill you.’

“I wouldn’t characterize them as death threats,” she said.

Well, we certainly hope no naughty homos have been sending threatening letters. Kern should resign, yes, but death’s a bit much. Also, it gives her fuel, and nobody wants that!

On another note, are we the only ones freaked out by Kern’s glassy, Stepford stare?
