Scott Esk is running for House District 91 state representative. This week an Oklahoma magazine discovered that last summer Esk endorsed stoning gay people to death, according to Slate.com.

“I think we would be totally in the right to do it,” he reportedly said in a Facebook post.

Esk went on to add nuance to his position: "That [stoning gay people to death] goes against some parts of libertarianism, I realize, and I’m largely libertarian, but ignoring as a nation things that are worthy of death is very remiss."
