Former schoolteacher and current lunatic Mary Lou Bruner, 69, lost her race for the Republican nomination for Texas State Board of Education.
Bruner made national news when she claimed President Barack Obama was a gay prostitute in college to pay for his drug habit. She also said dinosaurs and humans lived together until Noah took two baby dinosaurs on the ark who were too young to reproduce. Of course, they couldn’t mature because there wasn’t enough vegetation left on earth. Hmmm … how did the elephants survive? She claimed climate change is a hoax created by Karl Marx. (Hasn’t he been dead since 1883?) And Democrats killed Kennedy because the communists in the party didn’t want a conservative president.
She lost the election to Keven Ellis, president of the Lufkin ISD board. Ellis was endorsed by, well, every newspaper in the district. Bruner’s most visible endorsement came from Cathie Adams, founder of the Texas Eagle Forum. On her website, several endorsements are marked, “Withdrawn.”
In the November election, Ellis faces Democrat Amanda Rudolph, a professor at Stephen F. Austin University.
