Starnes: Oregon Official Who Bullied Christian Bakery Loses Election
An Oregon bureaucrat who waged political jihad against the owners of a Christian bakery was given the heave-ho by voters.
Labor Commissioner Brad Avakian was defeated in his bid to be Secretary of State by Republican Dennis Richardson.
It’s the first time a Republican has been elected to a statewide office in Oregon since 2002.
So consider this – Avakian was too liberal for what is arguably one of the most liberal states in the country.
Avakian, a passionate advocate for the LGBTQIA crowd, was thrust into the national spotlight when he declared war on a Christian bakery in 2013.
