Hillary Clinton Shares How She Coped With Monica Lewinsky Scandal

In advance of the coming presidential debates, Hillary Clinton spoke to CNN about how she coped with her husband Bill Clinton’s affair with Monica Lewinsky 20 years ago.

Donald Trump has hinted that he considers the subject “fair game” and won’t pause to somehow blame Hillary for the sins of her husband.

Having been legally married for almost 13 years now, and with my husband Michael for 22 years, I think it’s tawdry to bring up since Hillary wasn’t the one cheating on her spouse.

That said, I will add that both presidential candidates have faced challenges in their marriages. Hillary with Bill’s indiscretions and Trump with his two divorces.

While I believe political spouses should be off-limits, I think it does give the American voter information about how these two candidates handled personal challenges.

Hillary honored her marriage vows and worked through her issues with Bill. Donald, who did cheat on his first wife with his second, cut and run.

Take that info however you like.

I’m willing to bet that Hillary will not be bringing up Donald’s multiple divorces. #WhosTheClassAct

Alabama’s Lone Gay Legislator Threatens To Out Colleagues’ Marital Infidelities

Alabama state Rep. Patricia Todd has decided she’s had enough of the grand espousing of “family values” as an attack on same-sex couples as the marriage equality issue comes to a head in her state.

Speaking to the Daily Times, Todd said:

“I will not stand by and allow legislators to talk about ‘family values’ when they have affairs, and I know of many who are and have,” Todd, the state’s only openly gay lawmaker, said on Facebook over the weekend. “I will call our elected officials who want to hide in the closet out.”

“If certain people come out and start espousing this rhetoric about family values, then I will say, ‘Let’s talk about family values, because here’s what I heard.’ I don’t have direct knowledge, because obviously I’m not the other person involved in the affair. But one thing you would never hear about me is that I ever cheated on a partner or had an affair,” said Todd.

“One thing I’m pretty consistent on is I do not like hypocrites,” she added. “If you can explain your position and you hold yourself to the same standard you want to hold me to, then fine. But you cannot go out there and smear my community by condemning us and somehow making us feel less than, and expect me to be quiet.”

After reading some anti-gay rhetoric based on “family values” attacking the recent ruling which struck down Alabama’s same-sex marriage ban, Todd issued her not-too-veiled threat.

Marriage equality is currently on hold – AGAIN – as Judge Granade issued a last minute 14 day stay on her ruling.

The Attorney General of Alabama is heading to the 11th Circuit Court of Appeals in hopes of a longer stay on the ruling.
