AL: Relative of 'openly Gaynell' candidate challenging 'openly gay' victor

by Jeremy Hooper

The mother-in-law of Gaynell Hendricks, the Alabama Democrat who was recently defeated by openly gay Patricia Todd in a primary for an open House seat, is accusing Ms. Todd of using underhanded tactics to steal the election. Among Mattie Childress' reported claims is that Todd received illegal votes and intentionally filed a campaign finance report in a way that kept voters from knowing she was supported by the pro-gay Victory Fund.

Also, we hear she's complaining that "these grapes are very sour" and that her "loser's really quite sore."
