Gay Democrat defends attempt to out 'hypocrite' Governor of Alabama Kay Ivey

Gay Democrat defends attempt to out 'hypocrite' Governor of Alabama Kay Ivey Gay Democrat defends attempt to out 'hypocrite' Governor of Alabama Kay Ivey

One Orlando Alliance, a coalition of LGBTQ groups formed in the wake of the Pulse nightclub massacre, has rescinded a job offer for Patricia Todd, the out, retiring Alabama lawmaker who ignited a firestorm in that state by suggesting anti-LGBTQ Governor Kay Ivey is gay. "And I know that he specifies in the Bible that marriage is between a man and a woman, and I live my life according to those values and the biblical definition of marriage", said Ivey. "And I realize that it's not a popular opinion and I'll get a lot of backlash, but at this point in time, I'm willing to risk everything politically to make this happen".

Dwight Adams feels it's vital that good republican candidates are elected to serve in office.

"Whether these attacks are malicious or ignorant or both", she ended her official statement, "they represent everything that's wrong with politics today". Todd also alleged that Ivey's secret girlfriend was forced to move out after she became governor.

Todd posted on social media that someone needs to out Ivey already, that she had heard for years that Ivey's gay.

Todd's Twitter account was locked down shortly afterward.

"Telling lies is just disgusting", Ivey told WVTM 13 in an interview on Wednesday. "While Ms. Todd has a well-established record of outstanding service to the community, her lapse in judgment has led us to end our relationship with her".

She told the Birmingham News: "I hate hypocrites".

Todd previously announced she will not be running for re-election to her seat in the House of Representatives - which, fortunately, means she'll avoid any potentially uncomfortable interactions with Ivey should the governor be elected to a full term in her own right.

She recently signed a law that allows people to discriminate against gay couples, and this week she intervened in a row over LGBT organisations getting funding from the state.

The bill provides protections for adoption agencies that claim that religious beliefs mean they can't place children with gay couples, by stopping the state from taking action against them.
