Man with "incorrect" opinions won election to the Kentucky House of Representatives
Abortionists do murder babies and if it's OK to call George Bush a chimp it is surely OK to call Obama an ape
Republican Dan Johnson posted messages on Facebook that displayed prejudice toward black people, Muslims and others during his campaign for a seat in the Kentucky House of Representatives. He talked of white pride and Southern secession; he shared at least three pictures showing President Obama as an ape. He also aired videos in which he accused his opponent, Democratic Rep. Linda Belcher, of murdering 80,000 babies, and he said she hired “Chicago thugs” to terrorize his family.
“The Islam-crat Barack Obama — Criminal Clinton, Criminal Hillary — and Lyin’ Linda, and you know what? They have sent Chicago thugs after me. Chicago thugs after me! They came to my house, they came to our church,” Johnson said in a video posted Oct. 28. “Threatening my life, threatening my grand-babies’ life. … That’s who Linda Belcher has put on me.”
Embarrassed by Johnson’s behavior, on Oct. 1, the Republican Party of Kentucky and House Minority Floor Leader Jeff Hoover called on him to drop out of the race.
Instead, he won, narrowly defeating Belcher, a three-term incumbent, by a vote of 9,342 to 9,186. Johnson will represent Bullitt County’s 49th House District in the General Assembly for the next two years.
