Openly gay, openly victorious: Todd nomination reinstated

by Jeremy Hooper

   Reversing last week's decision to invalidate Patricia Todd's nomination for Alabama's District 54 House seat, the state's Democratic Executive Committee ruled this weekend to restore the openly gay nominee's election win.

Just.

So now that she's battled racial issues, gay issues, and matters of campaign financial disclosure in her quest towards becoming Alabama's first openly gay elected official, what's next for Todd? Well, she's going to be a lesbian in the Alabama Statehouse -- clearly her battles have all been waged and it's just smooth, gay sailing from here on out. After all, when's the last time those guys acted in an anti-gay manner?

Rest easy, Patricia -- your fight is over (for now).
