Alabama Pol Threatens to Expose Affairs of Colleagues


Angered by the comments of Republican politicians in Alabama after a federal judge declared the state’s same-sex marriage ban unconstitutional, Alabama’s first openly gay state legislator is threatening to disclose the extramarital affairs of her fellow elected officials, reports State Rep. Patricia Todd, a Birmingham Democrat, fired off an emotional Facebook post directed at Alabama Speaker of the House Mike Hubbard and Attorney General Luther Strange, both of whom vowed to challenge the judge’s ruling.

“To say I am disappointed in Speaker Hubbard comment’s and Attorney General Strange choice to appeal the decision is an understatement,” Todd posted over the weekend. “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. I will call our elected officials who want to hide in the closet out.” She doubled down on the threat in an interview Monday, saying, “Don’t start throwing bricks at my window when yours is already cracked as well.”
