Reason's Hit & Run blog has a couple of scans of a funny comic book from a homophobic politician who's under fire for abusing his office.
Oklahoma County Commissioner Brent Rinehart is facing a tough reelection campaign. He's been accused of abusing his office for personal gain, and will go on trial in the fall on felony campaign finance charges. But apparently, this is all a conspiracy of homosexuals, liberal do gooders, and good ol' boys to force Rinehart out of office. Rinehart lays out his case in a comic book he's sending out to voters, which–you may be surprised to learn–he wrote himself.You can download the highly entertaining comic book in its entirety here: Brent Rinehart for Oklahoma County Commissioner comic book PDF
