“This most recent personal attack against me is beyond disgraceful. It’s a disgusting lie being pushed by a paid left wing liberal political operative. There is absolutely no truth to it. It’s false. It’s wrong. It’s a bald faced lie. And I’m not gonna let them get away with it. Whether these attacks are malicious or ignorant or both – they represent everything that’s wrong with politics today.” – Alabama Gov. Kay Ivey, with a second denial of the tweeted claim made by openly gay state Rep. Patricia Todd, who has since taken her Twitter account private.
