Anti-Gay Comic Book Writer Brent Rinehart Loses Primary


Oklahoma County Commissioner Brent Rinehart, who sent out a 16-page comic book to voters that mocked gays as well as his political opponents, came in last in a three-way primary race on Tuesday.

Brent2"On Tuesday, Rinehart was tossed out of office by voters in his district, finishing third in a three-way primary with 1,900 votes, or 21 percent. 'I've been battling and battling for many years, and I believe even though I still had some fight left in me, I don't believe the public had it left in them,' Rinehart said Tuesday night. 'I don't in any way blame them.' Brian Maughan, 31, a political consultant and former county employee, garnered 4,238 votes, or 47 percent. Former Bethany Mayor J.D. Johnston had 2,808 votes, or 32 percent, enough to force an Aug. 26 runoff election with Maughan. The winner of that runoff will face Harrah Democrat Jim Dickinson, who captured 54 percent of the vote in a three-way Democratic primary."

Losing the primary won't mean Rinehart's schedule is empty, though: "Rinehart is scheduled to appear at an Oklahoma County District Court hearing on Thursday in connection with several felony campaign corruption charges he's facing in connection with his previous campaign."

  4. Karma's a bitch. And, she ain't done yet. Can you say "corruption convictions"? A little jail time will deliver him a world of hurt, even if he goes in as sloppy seconds.

  5. How you gonna be corrupt AND hopeless?

    Either be corrupt but at least successful, or a failure but at least honest. He's corrupt, a failure, and now a laughing stock. Good work, douche.

  6. And this douche is another example of why your school teachers tell you that spelling counts.

  7. But on the upside, his comic book will be hitting the big screen as Will Smith's 2009 summer release.

  8. Hooray for my home state... I always knew there were some right-thinking people hidden amongst the crazies, and this proves me correct.

    Have fun in prison, Brent. Just remember... relax, push out, and think of England. It'll make it easier.

  15. Maybe if he'd hired an artist to do the "comic book" rather than drawing it himself, people would have been fooled that he had some competency. I've known kindergartners who had more artistic talent.

    BTW, Brent, you shore got a pretty mouth....

  16. As Nelson Munz would say:

  18. Some of us in Oklahoma have brains and we use them for good not evil.
    This man was a joke from the beginning, I'm just sorry that he got as much attention as he did.

  20. Let's face it, even in Oklahoma, "I'm a good guy" and "I hate gays" isn't much to build a campaign on.

    Mississippi, on the other hand...
