Okla. Mayor Apologizes After Husband, Friends Dress Up as KKK, Carry Burning Torches

"Lahoma, Okla., Mayor Theresa Sharp publicly apologized after her husband, Cary Sharp, and some of his friends dressed up in white robes and carried burning torches as part of a so-called prank.

The husband of an Oklahoma mayor thought it would just be a hilarious laugh with friends when they donned white sheets to dress up as the Ku Klux Klan, complete with burning torches.

Lahoma, Okla., Mayor Theresa Sharp is now apologizing for her husband, Cary Sharp's, actions, which prompted alarm in their neighborhood, KOCO reports.

"[It] happened on my property. You know, I don't know what else to say other than I'm sorry to the community and I'm sorry to the public," Mayor Sharp told the news station, which noted that the mayor was holding back tears. "It was the stupidity and actions of four separate individuals and it does not reflect on me or anyone else who is in the community."

Cary Sharp said the display, complete with hoods, a cross and bonfire, was just for Halloween.

And although a cross could be seen in the background, according to Fox 17, Cary Sharp insisted that no cross was burned."
