OKC Councilwoman Outed As Former Pageant Contestant

6:53 AM EDT on June 12, 2020

There's a lot of serious stuff going on in the world right now, and only a few million places in the world to read and write about it. As a result, I thought I'd focus on the craziest local news story of the week – OKC City Councilwoman JoBeth Hamon is a former pageant contestant!

Yes, that's right. The bike-riding, Bernie-loving, mop-topped progressive is apparently the former Miss Prineville from Oregon. We know this because she tweeted about it:

Back in our Brah Stool Sports days, we would have been all over this like Jaime Cerreta hitting the lunges, scouring the web and Internet archives for swimsuit pics and then posting them on the Internet for page views, but now I'm kind of "Meh. We've matured." Granted, that's probably because my searches came up empty, but whatever.

Anyway, we've been playing social media "Gotchya!" since before there was social media "Gotchya," and I have to agree with JoBeth's sarcastic reply. The only dirt you can dig up on her is that she was a pageant contestant who could sing and fight against genocide??? That's weak. Sure, pageant culture may be dripping with toxicity femininity, but considering she's an Oklahoma politician, the revelation will probably be beneficial to her political career. At the very least, she can become a news anchor if the whole politician thing doesn't work out.

We may have discussed JoBeth's pageant days when she came on The Lost Ogle Show, but that was a week before we shut down for the pandemic and now I can't remember.
