Woman who called Obama gay prostitute loses bid for Texas Board of Education

Mary Lou Bruner, the Texas woman who called President Barack Obama a former gay prostitute and said public school pre-kindergarten programs made children confused about their sexuality, has lost her bid for the Texas Board of Education.

Bruner, a former school teacher, has also blamed school shootings on the teaching of evolution. In one of her many social media posts, she referred to black slaves as “economic immigrants.”

She took more than 48 percent of the vote in her district on Super Tuesday leading her to a runoff in the May 24 election. She did not make up the ground she needed to win a seat on the TBE Wednesday.
