GOP Flyer Draws Fire

-
(KFOR)  A flyer for an upcoming Oklahoma GOP fundraiser has sparked a political firestorm.

Governor Mary Fallin's name headlines the flyer for the Garvin County GOP "Bean Feed" fundraiser, complete with a dancing bean in the top corner wearing a sombrero.

On the agenda the flyer says, "things that you may not know about the NRA, Planned Parenthood, Ku Klux Klan and other organizations."

The head of the Garvin County GOP Allie Burgin confirmed the flyer is real, but says it's not what you think.

"I feel like the GOP gets a bad rap," Burgin says.

Burgin says the Republican Party wanted to debunk any perceived link between the GOP and the Ku Klux Klan by giving historical background on the controversial organization.
