Democrats Will Love this One – Alabama politician Bill Johnson in New Zealand sex scandal

Bill Johnson was a long-time assistant to ex-Alabama Governor Bob Riley. In 2010, Johnson sought to replace Riley as Governor, but got only 2% of the vote. A Republican, Johnson ran on a fairly-conventional, anti-gay platform.

After the race ended, Johnson ended up in New Zealand working on earthquake recovery. His wife did not accompany him. Now, it turns out that Johnson has been “outed” by a New Zealand newspaper as a sperm donor for New Zealand’s lesbian couples.

I don’t want to give away too much of the story, but Johnson provides some unintentional laughs with his lame attempts to worm out of this scandal. These stories are well worth a look.

Here is the story from the New Zealand Herald

About mobilemojoman

I have been a Mobile resident for about a decade. Working as a college professor keeps me off the streets and pays the bills. I am married to a woman (the MojoWoman) who is a much better person than I am and we have two beautiful girls who keep us both jumping. My interests are varied - food & drink, sports, politics, exercise, books, travel, Mardi Gras, and all of life's rich pageant. In the future, I'd like to learn more about sailing, photography, Cajun/Creole cooking, making beer and wine, and writing.
