OK State Legislator Investigating OU's Invitation to Richard Dawkins

Greg Lukianoff, in an entry at the Huffington Post, reveals that Oklahoma State Representative Rebecca Hamilton has demanded that University of Oklahoma President David Boren provide her with an exhaustive list of information about the invitation to speak at the University that was extended to Dr. Richard Dawkins.

This is the same State Representative who has laundered more than $100,000 dollars of state money to support select politically active churches in her district.

It should be no surprise to learn that someone actively engaged in subverting both the Constitution of the United States and the Constitution of the state of Oklahoma would also be opposed to free speech and academic freedom.

Someone with some legal authority needs to demand an equally exhaustive list of information from Representative Hamilton about the state money that she has been diverting from legitimate public purposes to fill the coffers of churches.
