Theresa Sharp, mayor of the small Oklahoma town of Lahoma issued an apology after her husband, Cary Sharp, and his friends, held a Klu Klux Klan rally as a ‘Halloween prank.’
So, Cary Sharp, 47, along with his friends thought it would be a good idea to role-play as the KKK for Halloween.
Sharp and his friends are seen in a photo in full Klu Klux Klan white robes and hoods holding burning torches in front of a huge cross symbolizing the once terrifying cross burnings of a dark past.
Cary Sharp himself says that the display of them in white sheets standing in front of a cross and bonfire was simply for Halloween.
Meanwhile, Mayor Theresa Sharp issued a statement apologizing saying that she doesn’t know anything to say but “I’m sorry,” which she directed at ‘the community [of Lahoma]’ as well as to ‘the public’ for the “poor judgement” of her husband and his friends.
Mayor Sharp added that “it was stupidity” and “does not reflect [herself]” or “anyone else… in [their] community.”
While Cary Sharp and his friends were holding a prank KKK rally, Mayor Sharp, who says she and the city [of Lahoma] does not endorse the behavior of her husband and his friends that night, claims she was “trick-a-treating with [her] child” for Halloween.
