Flashing for cash in Alabama
The candidate with the most moxie in the Alabama governor’s race is Loretta Nall, the Libertarian candidate. You might remember my earlier post, Boobage and the governor’s race in Alabama, detailing the ridiculous obsession over Ms. Nall’s boobies by a local editorial columnist, Bob Ingram, who said:
“Allow me to express a personal note of appreciation to Bob Martin, the editor of this newspaper, for finding a picture of gubernatorial candidate Loretta Nall to run with my column last week. I am sure it attracted a lot of readers.”
“In 55 years of political writing, that was a first for me–a picture in my column of a woman displaying cleavage. I can only hope that my mother…and I know for a fact where she ended in the after life…didn’t see that column. She wouldn’t have approved of that picture.”
This is “that picture”:
Nall responded with humor and grace.
At the present time, Nall’s in a battle to get on the ballot, which is an uphill effort in the state. She needs to gather 42,000 valid signatures and present them to the Secretary of State by June 6th in order to appear on the ballot with the Democrat and Republican candidates, who don’t have to clear that hurdle.
Loretta has launched a “Flash for Cash” campaign to raise the money to do the outreach and gather those signatures. This is a hoot:
“For a measly $2, you can tell the uppity Alabama media that you think all candidates deserve to get on the ballot — no matter their race, political party or boob size.”
