Gerhart Mocks Steele Disability
Writing in the Sooner Tea Party newsletter, Gerhart refers to McNiel as "perennially pregnant" and said the birth announcement, coming from Steele's office, was "even more than a little bit creepy, approaching appalling...."
And then Gerhart writes: "The parents named the baby after Speaker Steele...as in Sami Steele McNiel. Did the baby, God forbid, have a bad leg or something? Is she now destined to be shot with a Daisy BB gun by one of her friends resulting in a six figure settlement? Perhaps Speaker Steele might reconsider those caps on legal damages if his namesake might have to walk, uh, hobble in his footsteps."
