Governor Ivey sexuality in questioned by former Alabama Legislator

Patricia Todd

Gubernatorial candidate Scott Dawson is calling into question state funds he says were awarded to an LGBTQ group during Gov. Kay Ivey's time in office.

The Ivey campaign is vigorously denying the accusation.

Todd, the first openly gay elected official in Alabama's history, announced in March that she would not be seeking reelection and is apparently no longer giving any Fs.

When some conservative Alabama lawmakers were outraged by the marriage ruling, claiming family values, it was Todd who hinted she might divulge the names of those anti-marriage conservatives who were secretly having extramarital affairs.

"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.

Ivey signed the so-called Child Placing Agency Inclusion Act, which enshrines discrimination into Alabama law by allowing some state-licensed adoption and foster care agencies to reject qualified prospective LGBTQ adoptive or foster parents based on the agency's religious beliefs. She has no children.

The closure of Free2Be offices in Alabama comes after state officials found out the LGBTQ advocacy group owed the IRS payroll taxes, state officials said Tuesday.

"I believe in the Republican Party, what we stand for, and most important, we need to have a Republican in the United States Senate to vote on things like the Supreme Court justices, other appointments the Senate has to confirm and make major decisions", she claimed.

But Todd is standing by her actions.

"I am really disappointed in that level of attack", said Public Service Commission candidate Robin Litaker. "It's mind boggling. And these are the people that call themselves Christians".

"I certainly don't agree with the agenda or the values of that organization", said Ivey, according to AL.com.

"The views espoused by Free2Be, nor the extension of a grant to the program, do not represent Governor Ivey's personal views and simply represent a requirement and demand from the federal government", the statement from Ivey's office read.
