And this gem comes to us from Ken McCauley on the Wyoming Progressives page. As Ken writes:
Steve Bray (R) is apparently running for the Wyoming ASSEMBLY. According to the Wyoming Constitution, (Article 3) ‘the legislature of the State of Wyoming’ consists of ‘a senate and a house of representatives.’ Help me out historians, when was the last time The Wyoming government was called an assembly, 1888’s Wyoming Territorial Assembly?”
I got this. From the Wyoming Legislature’s website:
“In 1890, there were two legislative sessions held. The Eleventh, which was the last Territorial Legislative Assembly, convened January 14, 1890 and adjourned March 14, 1890. The first State Legislature convened November 12, 1890 and adjourned January 10, 1891.”
Long story short, there is no State Assembly in Wyoming.
Emphasis mine. Protip for life, kids: If you’re going to run for office, it’s helpful to know what the office is, and in which capacity you’ll be serving, i.e. the correct name of the legislative body. Perhaps he forgot he was running for state house, and chose assembly. Y’know, a few too many at a rodeo weekend, and crazy things happen.
Either that, or Steve Bray is convening a one-man assembly. I imagine
they’ll he’ll be holding meetings in a cabin in the woods. He and the trees will talk about Agenda 21, which is “an insidious, step-by-step, process that has found its way into federal, state, and local government” according to Steve and other — er — interesting folks.
He’s also running to protect family values. Why? Because reasons, hippies, and the sixties. Bray writes, “Since our society deviated from the family unit, most notably in the sixties, teen pregnancies, suicides, abortions, sexually transmitted diseases, among others, have all gone up.”
I really just don’t know what to say here, other than I sort of hope he wins. His opponent, Steve Harshman, is ridiculously conservative, and barring a write-in on the Democratic side, the primary ends the race for District 37. I just think Bray might be entertaining as hell. Imagine his shock IF he wins and discovers he’s been elected to the legislature, not the assembly! I bet he’ll feel so cheated.
