Ohio man running for senate on "kill gays" platform

I'm coming off hiatus briefly for some good ol' fashion Ohio news.

Merrill Keiser, Jr., is a trucker by trade, and he's hoping his next journey takes him all the way to Washington. His goal is a seat in the US Senate, but first he has to make it through the primary that will determine which Ohio Democrat will be the November ballot.

The Fremont man is causing some controversy with one of his beliefs. He tells News 11 homosexuality should be a felony, punishable by death. "Just like we have laws against murder, we have laws against stealing, we have laws against taking drugs -- we should have laws against immoral conduct," Keiser says. [link]

Of course, this man doesn't have a snowball's chance in hell of winning, but it's still interesting to see this sort of platform. I use the word "interesting," of course, to mean "brain-numbing, hurt-your-brain stupid."
