Lesbian discharge smells fishy to us

by Jeremy Hooper

   The much-scrutinized challenge that was waged against Alabama statehouse candidate Patricia Todd's election win took an eyebrow-raising turn last night, when a committee of the state's Democrats voted 5-0 to not only disqualify the openly gay Todd (pic.) and invalidate her historic victory, but to also disqualify her primary opponent, Gaynell Hendricks. The reason? The committee found that both women were in violation of a rule requiring that they file a financial disclosure statement with the party chariman, a rule that, according to the AP, has been ignored by every other candidate since 1988.

How bizarre that it becomes applicable for the first openly gay person to ever get elected to public office in Alabama. What are the odds?

For her part, Todd tells the AP that she thinks her election was challenged less because she's gay and more because she's a white woman who would be representing a mostly black district. We, however, think it's because she has free-hanging earlobes.
