GAY MARRIAGE RULING COULD LEAD TO MASS OUTING OF POLITICAL AFFAIRS
|| By FITSNEWS || An openly gay Democratic lawmaker in Alabama is threatening to expose the alleged infidelities of her colleagues – arguing their extramarital affairs render them hypocrites in defending so-called “family values.”
Patricia Todd – who represents Birmingham – took to social media this week in response to comments made by Alabama Speaker of the House Mike Hubbard and state attorney general Luther Strange. Hubbard and Strange – both “Republicans” – took strong positions in support of Alabama’s gay marriage ban, which was recently ruled unconstitutional by a federal judge.
In response to the ruling, Hubbard said Alabama’s legislative branch would “continue defending the Christian conservative values that make Alabama a special place to live.” Strange’s office, meanwhile, sought a stay of the ruling.
Sound familiar? Anyway, Todd didn’t appreciate Hubbard and Strange’s comments …
“I will not stand by and allow legislators to talk about ‘family values’ when they have affairs, and I know of many who are and have,” Todd said, according to AL.com “I will call our elected officials who want to hide in the closet OUT.”
Damn …. them’s fighting words.
“One thing I’m pretty consistent on is I do not like hypocrites,” Todd told The Huffington Post. “If you can explain your position and you hold yourself to the same standard you want to hold me to, then fine. But you cannot go out there and smear my community by condemning us and somehow making us feel less than, and expect me to be quiet.”
Good for her … we hope she has a long list. And we hope she has pictures, too, because as our founding editor knows all too well “pictures … or it didn’t happen” is the rule for 21st century affair allegations (phone logs and text messages don’t count).
You go, girl! Let’s see how this plays out.
Todd, the lesbian pervertress won’t do it ,cause she will be sued and ruined. Plus she has nothing.
Sued for what?
If AL is like SC, she can say ANYTHING in the well of the chamber and NOT be sued. Speech on the floor of the Legislature is exempt from libel and slander laws.
It will play out like it always does.Doesn’t matter whether it is a woman beating, spurned lover , the ‘town clown’ or a pervert shouting from the floor of the legislature spewing falsehoods and lies about their neighbors and others in the community.
After awhile, nobody listens.
Did you say something?
I must have. You replied.
“Family values” politicians often have a closet full of non-family-values skeletons. Non-politicians, not so much. Must be a function of the psychotic power-intoxicated narcissists attracted to political life.
Cool! I hope she has a ledger full of names and solid proof on each and every one!!!!!
I like the move but,politically?It will have no effect.
Republicans really don’t care about all that “family values” garbage they blow off.
They’ll reelect the hypocrites anyway.
Correct on no effect.
Care about keeping the LGBT and pedophiles away from children/grandchildren.
Reelect? Damn right!
Homosexuality is no more linked to pedophilia than heterosexuality.
A lot of Al politicians just pooped their pants. A beautiful thing.
I doubt it.Ever watched *Walking Tall*?
Buford Pusser, about whom the movie “Walking Tall” was made was the Sheriff of McNairy County, Tennessee,
Yep and what happened to Bufford after he ‘exposed’the corruption?
I dare this stupid fool to do what she threatens. It will be the end of her and the total draining of her bank account and assets.
How so. Actually, here in SC we need to hope that for once maybe we can outshine Alabama on something. We sure can’t do it in economic development, education and football.
Thought you lived in Miami, San Diego, overseas etc…it is SC now? You have been posting non-stop for a couple of months now and apparently haven’t been doing any traveling.
GT caught ya.
Was in Charlotte two weeks ago. Heading to Birmingham next week to snag me some upset Legistature wives who will be in the “gettin’ some for gettin’ even” frame of mind.
How was your UAW meeting in Cleveland – Flip.
Damn dude. Charlotte and Birmingham with all that money you got?
Even a guy with modest means like I can afford a few months in Florida and Arizona with occasional romps to Vegas and SC.
Funny, I don’t remember Willie going through any of that.
Who cares? we live in a world where moral relativism rules. Seriously, a homosexual claiming some type of moral high ground over a religiously hypocritical adulterer is just laughable. I said it several weeks ago here and I’ll say it again, if I have to endure your sexual oddities (in a post gay ban America) then you should have to endure mine… from the sexual fetish I may have with being a prudish religious hypocrite, to wanting to marry my neighbor’s wife and his daughter, to wanting to being able to screw tree bark in public…. you see where I’m going with this? You don’t get to live in a double standard world.
Yeah see where you going with this homophobe.
Wow, so unoriginal… but here’s the thing, “homophobe”, which means a “fear of man” in Latin, is not me. Do you mean “homosexualphobe”?
You should invest in a dictionary before correcting someone’s wording.
Getting to be quite the troll.
Maybe you should learn Latin before correcting me… the Merriam-Webster definition was incorrectly conceived in 1971 based off of someone’s lack of understanding of Latin or in there clever attempt to co-opt the word “man” for the homosexual movement. Then again, they are known for co-opting everyday terms – like “gay” – so I guess the use of the incorrect term “homosexual” makes sense.
Seriously, a homosexual claiming some type of moral high ground over a religiously hypocritical adulterer is just laughable.
What *is* laughable is that’s not even remotely what was being claimed. The claim is that straight people can’t claim some type of moral high ground if they’re fucking the mail man.
Chicken/Egg… who effing cares? But here’s another angle… why should anyone care that a likely atheistic, secular gay person is chastising a nongay person for not living up to their religious vows… vows that again this gay person likely thinks is a fairy tale. Again, to people like me who live pretty moral lives, this situation is sad comedy.

when some self-righteous prick who thinks he’s God’s gift to man is chastising a gay person for not living like he does, while proactively and politically fucking with them and impeding their progress towards a more normal and rewarding life, it’s pretty hard to ignore it.
Fewer words please.Tired of reading your hateful bullshit.What a gig you got getting up everyday hating your country while spewing mocking and disgusting comments toward those of the Christian faith.
Sad thing is a POS like you actually has an audience on here.
Thank you for your service.
Tired of reading your hateful bullshit.
Same goes to you. :)

Same goes to you. :D

Because the non-gay religious dude is trying to enforce his religion on the secular gay person via stripping him of his rights?
Do you not find it hypocritical in the slightest bit that Christian politicians try to enforce their religious doctrine on others when they themselves cannot follow basic religious doctrine? I mean, for fuck’s sake, adultery is covered in the Ten Commandments. One of the Ten Commandments has a lot more sway than a Levitical
lollaw, don’t you think?
Please… be Gay if you want… but if you so choose, don’t: (1) bring religion into it; and (2) cast stones at others who are just as sexually perverted in a propogandist effort to imply a morally superior sexual lifestyle over these others.
“NOBODY CAN BE PRO-FAMILY VALUES UNLESS THEY ARE 100% MORALLY PERFECT ALL THE TIME.”
-every ghey person who wants to get married for family values
I wonder why you use the term ‘ghey’.I know it’s used as internet slang,but it’s also used to describe ‘gay’ men who have oral sex,only
No one is asking for 100% moral perfection, but boning another woman while married is very, very far outside of “family values” territory.
Remember, Sanford ran on “family values” that ultimately translated into a broken family, all for a mistress he ended up leaving when it was no longer convenient for him.
Exactly. Anytime a politician does something that’s contrary to a part of their platform, we should hound them to the ends of the earth for being a fraud. Kind of like that time Obama decided not to close Guantanamo. Of course for Smirks, Sanfraud banging some Argentenian chick behind is wife’s back is much bigger deal than continuing to keep 120 people imprisoned for over 6 years without charges and for no reason while promising to release them, because of Christian hypocrisy or something.
I bet it will get mighty “intersting”, mighty “intersting” at that.
Only took a day but I see Will finally saw his error.
… Not even.
There is nothing to her story. Just like Will Folks, Todd can’t back it up, in a matter of speaking. I mean, Will can back it up to T-Rav.
Would be interesting to watch if the woman exposed her colleagues. Imagine what would happen if someone exposed the sex lives of South Carolina’s elected ruling class.
LMAO…You march in the streets and call homosexuals well-adjusted – yet you never claim homosexual priests and Jerry Sandusky as yours/.
Then you use your homosexuality as a weapon against the people you HATE….
Bizarre indeed…and even more ignorant are the liberals and gossip-freaks cheering you on….
What orientation is it when neither man nor woman will have sex with you, GT?
What intersting is that SC isn’t 50th in the nation when it comes to education.
She doesn’t like hypocrites? She picked the wrong job.
She be bold.
Pathetic. I can’t stand nothing more than veiled threats. Lets even say it’s true. When you only threaten to expose it to further your agenda, YOU are also nothing more than a hypocrite.
“…values that make Alabama a special place to live…”
So many snarky comments, so little time…
Does this story imply many politicians (especially in the South) are lying hypocrites? Is it suggesting they would expound “family values” on the campaign trail while porking hookers on the side? Certainly it doesn’t mean that a so-called distinguished statesman would build a political career as a race-baiting segregationist while hiding and paying off his child by a black woman? Outrageous! How scurrilous!
