In a now-deleted Facebook post, Keller, a Republican from Middletown, Ohio, about 25 miles from Dayton, criticized liberals for starting the "blame game" but not putting the blame where it belonged.

A conservative Republican state lawmaker from OH has come under fire after posting a message on Facebook blaming mass shootings in America on, among a long list of things, "drag queen advocates, ' 'homosexual marriage, ' 'fatherlessness" and even former President Barack Obama.

A Republican state lawmaker from OH over the weekend sparked outrage after she blamed mass shootings on former President Barack Obama, gay marriage and "drag queen advocates".

She also slammed local lawmakers who she says have "no interest whatsoever" in learning about the Constitution, especially the Second Amendment, as well as "snowflakes who can't accept a duly elected President", according to the post.

"Did I forget anybody?" the post reads. The list is long. "And the fury will continue", she concluded.

Butler County Republican Party Chairman Todd Hall, meanwhile, distanced himself from Keller's comments and said that he "could not condone" them.

The comments drew ire from her own party, including the head of the Ohio GOP, Jane Timken.

Even some celebrities joined in speaking out against Keller's comments, with country singer Kacey Musgraves lambasting the OH lawmaker on Twitter for her controversial comments. "It's then not a political issue anymore", Musgraves said. "Of humanity. Of survival".

Keller is now running in the Republican primary for term-limited Republican Bill Coley's Senate District 4 seat in 2020 against state Rep. George Lang and West Chester Township Trustee Lee Wong.

Newsweek reached out to Keller's office but did not receive a response in time for publication.

Keller had previously made national headlines for her support of Ohio's "heartbeat bill" supported by pro-life advocates.
