It seems the problems GOP candidates are having with bigotry and crazy online remarks don’t end here with Allen-Gailushas or even here with Jason Priest, who as Pogie notes also was forced to apologize in the Billings Gazette today. Enter the hottest legislative race in the Gallatin Valley, HD 63 JP Pomnichowski vs. Tom Burnett. Folks this is one of the ten most-watched legislative races in the state. You may have already met Tom Burnett, whose odd blog needs to be read far and wide.
But there’s more.
One of Tim Ravndal’s “friends” on Facebook is Tom Burnett, candidate for the Montana Legislature in Bozeman. Burnett keeps a really unique blog, and below is one of his posts, almost as awful as Ravndal’s comments.
We always watch Hawk TV, the student produced TV program that airs Friday mornings for about 8 minutes. We are frequently subjected to promotions for gay and lesbian group meetings. This day there was an advertisement for a new support (dating facilitation?) group. Previously the only one was the Gay-Straight Alliance that meets Fridays at 3:45 at the Bridger Alternative School. Now there is a second such group. It is called the Queer Youth Support Group and it meets, (recruits?) at Bridger Clinic, weekly. This group is sponsored by a group called the Bozeman Gay Lesbian Bi-sexual Transgender Intersexed and Questioning Resource Center. (Is it only amatter of time before the umbrella covers pedophiles, necrophiles, and zoophiles? When will the high school advertise a group called Beastiality Acceptance Alliance, BAA?) The TV spot claimed that 10% of Bozeman’s population is homosexual. This could be liberty with numbers.
Then there’s the fact that Ravndal and Burnett are more than just Facebook friends, it appears they’ve organized events together while Ravndal was Tea Party president. Burnett is identified as one of the organizers of the event in this story.
