Gay Lawmaker Alleges Alabama's Governor Is A Closeted Lesbian

State Rep. Patricia Todd -Birmingham

On both Twitter and Facebook, Todd linked to another AL.com article concerning one of Ivey's challengers, Republican gubernatorial candidate and evangelist Scott Dawson, criticizing her over state funds going to the LGBT non-profit Free2Be.

"It's a disgusting lie being pushed by a paid left-wing liberal political operative".

Ivey said any suggestion that she is gay - which again, we repeat, she says she is not - is indicative of today's broken political climate.

Tweeted Todd: "Will someone out her for God's sake...."

Governor Kay Ivey's spokesperson has released a statement after an Alabama lawmaker posted rumors they had reportedly heard about the governor's sexuality.

Ivey, pictured above, became governor in April of past year, following the resignation of former Gov. Robert Bentley.

Ubiosft now taking registrations for The Crew 2 closed beta
Forget what you know about the first game, though, The Crew 2 is a far bigger, more ambitious prospect than its forebear. Ubisoft has announced plans to host a closed beta for The Crew 2 , from May 31 at 8 am UTC to June 4 at 8 am UTC.

Dawson said giving money to the organization calls into question secrecy in state government, saying state legislators would have known about any grants awarded through ADECA.

"There is absolutely no truth to it", Hancock added.

"She had the chance to right the ship, and on this she failed miserably", he said.

Ivey, who has been married to a man but is now divorced, has had an interesting trajectory in politics. Before 2002, she was a registered Democrat. She succeeded to the office of governor in 2017 after Robert Bentley resigned, pleading guilty to campaign-finance violations related to an alleged extramarital affair he had with a former staff member. "This bill is not about discrimination, but instead protects the ability of religious agencies to place vulnerable children in a permanent home", she said in a statement. She responded by distancing herself from Free2Be.

"LGBTQ issues still continue to be highly negative here in the state of Alabama, more so than anywhere else, so if you're looking for a way to chip away at a big-time front runner this is a good divisive issue to do it", said Jackson. But she also made headlines after marriage equality was sent nationwide. Earlier this year, she received a standing ovation on her last day in the state house of representatives.

"No child should ever be bullied. The Nobel Committee should act quickly in affirming President Trump's nomination and should give him the Nobel Peace Prize, which he certainly deserves". Despite some Alabamians sharing their disgust that Ivey failed to condemn Moore's sexual misconduct and rampant anti-LGBTQ views, her current approval rating is the third-highest in the country for sitting governors.
