Great minds think alike! NE AG Jon Bruning totally on same page as Vlad Putin spokesman about LGBTs having sex with furniture

Nebraska Attorney General Jon Bruning, currently running for governor again, has a history of likening gay relationships to a romantic attachment to articles of furniture as does Vladmir Putin's spokesman Sergei Markov:

     Last week Bruning spent an undetermined amount of Nebraska public funds filing an amicus brief in support of Utah's efforts to keep gay couples strangers to the law.
     By filing a brief on behalf of Utah, Jon Bruning has shown yet again that he seems never to have met an antigay policy or law he doesn't embrace.
     In November 2003, Jon Bruning said Massachusetts' Supreme Court ruling against that state's ban on gay marriages was ridiculous. "Does that mean you have to allow a man to marry his pet, or a man to marry his chair?" Bruning said. "I mean, at some point, it needs to stop." [Associated Press, 11/18/03]
     In 2011, Jon Bruning had Nebraska State Senator Mike Gloor introduce legislation punishing HIV+ Nebraskans who sneezed in the direction of a cop with up to five years in prison and a $10,000 fine — despite the fact that the CDC has repeatedly said that saliva has never been shown to transmit HIV.
     In 2012, after state Senator Beau McCoy's bill to kill looming gay rights ordinances in Omaha and Lincoln died in committee, Bruning issued an opinion that LGBT rights ordinances were illegal anyway despite contrary opinions by city attorneys in both Lincoln and Omaha.
