Last night, Rep. Emily Virgin (D Norman) hosted the 2nd Iftar dinner at the Oklahoma State Capitol. She tweeted how proud and honored she was to host it:
An Iftar dinner is a religious dinner observed by Muslims. The link that CAIR tweeted was to a AP story about it. Oklahoma senators Tom Ivester and John Sparks also hosted it. I asked Rep. Virgin, via a tweet, this morning who funded the dinner. So far, nothing. As a Oklahoma taxpayer, I want to know. Another question I have for Rep. Emily Virgin is what religious dinners were held at the Oklahoma State Capitol that honored Christian, Jewish or other faiths in the last two years. When I asked her a similar question last year she said she didn't know"
I tweeted Rep. Virgin a number of times since then to ask that a similar dinner be held to honor the Christian faith - which she just ignored.
Update 8/2/12: Rep. Emily Virgin yesterday evening told me by Twitter the dinner was privately funded.
