Default Gay Alabama lawmaker suggests governor is lesbian; Ivey calls it 'disgusting lie'

Remember when the Left said what goes on in someone's bedroom should stay there?...

Gay Alabama lawmaker suggests governor is lesbian; Ivey calls it 'disgusting lie'

Quote:
Patricia Todd, Alabama's only openly gay state legislator, posted comments on social media Tuesday night suggesting that Alabama Gov. Kay Ivey is gay.

Todd, who is not seeking re-election to office this year, posted the comments on Facebook and Twitter.

The Ivey campaign denied the accusation.

"This is a disgusting lie being pushed by a paid liberal political hack," said Debbee Hancock, Ivey campaign spokeswoman. "There is absolutely no truth to it."

In a follow-up email from AL.com seeking more information about the phrase "paid liberal political hack" in the initial statement by the Ivey campaign, Hancock said of Todd, "She's a professional paid left-wing political activist."

On May 1, Todd was named executive director of One Orlando Alliance -- a nonprofit organization that advocates for the rights of LGBTQ individuals and was formed in response to the 2016 Pulse nightclub shooting. Todd is scheduled to begin that job on June 1.

AL.com attempted to reach Todd via phone and at her Birmingham home on Tuesday night but she was not available.

On both social media channels, Todd posted the same comment:

"Will someone out her for God's sake....I have heard for years that she is gay and moved her girlfriend out of her house when she became Gov. I am sick of closeted elected officials," Todd wrote on Facebook and Twitter.

The social media posts were made on both Facebook and Twitter at 7:33 p.m. Tuesday.

The assertions by Todd, a Democrat, are stunning developments just three weeks before the Republican gubernatorial primary on June 5. Ivey, who became governor on April 10, 2017, after Robert Bentley resigned, is seeking a full term in office and she has three opponents for the GOP nomination.

"I certainly don't agree with the agenda or the values of that organization," Ivey said earlier Tuesday when speaking with reporters in Tuscaloosa about the LGBTQ group Dawson brought to attention.

Ivey, 73, is single and has been divorced twice. She has no children.

Some on the left have a caveat that politicians who are secretly gay but work against gay equality should be outed and exposed as such.
In this case, Kay Ivey has signed legislation which allows adoption agencies to deny service to potential parents who are gay.

I don't know what Patricia's motivations are or what information Patricia might / might not supposedly have. Those who out solely for the sake of outing are repugnant to me.

I agree. Outing someone without their permission is hateful and does NOT help the gay and lesbian movement in any way.
