Mary, Mary, quite contrary, where are your PR people, anyway?

Gazette staff September 4th, 2013

Apparently, they’re getting their wires crossed and leaving Gov. Mary Fallin to look like she’s not keeping up with the times.

 On Aug. 25, Fallin made the comment that it would be “a nice gesture” if President Obama reached out to the family of an Australian college student who was gunned down in Duncan. Christopher Lane, a baseball player at East Central University in Ada, was jogging near his girlfriend’s house when three teens shot him in the back because they were “bored.”

Lo and behold, Fallin apparently wasn’t told that the President expressed his sympathy to Lane’s family a day earlier. Oops. Appearing on Fox News Sunday, Fallin told anchor Chris Wallace that it “would be nice if our nation were to certainly express their condolences, how very sorry we are.”

C’mon, gov. Get your PR hacks to set up a Google alert or two.
