YES! Democrat Who Put Christian Bakers Out Of Business Just Met KARMA!

By now, everyone knows the story: a Christian baker was asked to make a wedding cake for a gay couple and she refused. The gay couple not only sued, they helped create a media uproar that put the baker out of business… and all because someone exercised their freedom of religion. It wasn’t just the lesbian duo that helped bankrupt the baker, though. A Democrat politician enthusiastically helped and now karma has come calling.

This all took place in 2013, after Melissa and Aaron Klein were targeted by Rachel and Laurel Bowman-Cryer. Rachel had visited Sweet Cakes by Melissa to order a wedding cake, having previously purchased a cake for her mother’s sixth wedding. Rachel wanted the same cake again. When Aaron Klein asked what the names of the bride and groom were, Rachel told him that it was two brides. Aaron responded that they don’t cater same-sex weddings and Rachel promptly filed a complaint with the Oregon Bureau of Labor and Industries.

Democrat Brad Avakian was, at the time, serving as commissioner. Avakian helped put Sweet Cakes by Melissa out of business, by fining the Kleins $135,000 and garnishing their bank accounts to cover the fine. Altogether, the state took $144,000 from the Kleins.

Fast-forward to 2016. Avakian was running for Oregon’s Secretary of State… and he was delivered a crushing defeat. Republican Dennis Richardson was elected instead, the first time a Republican has held state office in Oregon in 14 years.

According to Rob Kremer, a political analyst, voters were concerned about Avakian’s abuse of power. And while the Sweet Cakes case was not the sole reason for his defeat, it was an example to voters that Avakian did, in fact, abuse his position when it suited his progressive agenda. “I think people in Oregon were uncomfortable with Avakian’s stated objective of expanding the scope of the secretary of state’s office to broaden a progressive agenda,” Kremer said. “While I don’t think the Sweetcakes by Melissa case was the only thing that turned off voters, it was certainly an example people could point to to show that he was abusing his authority.”

Not a single newspaper offered Avakian their endorsement.

As for the Kleins, they are still appealing the lawsuit filed against them. And clearly, they’re not sad over Avakian’s new unemployment. “His losing was a good sign that people don’t agree with somebody who is anti-constitutional to the nth degree,” Aaron Klein said. “He never recognized our religious constitutional rights in his office. He just ignored them. And then he went off-kilter with ideas about what he wanted to do in his new office.”
