Alabama State Rep. Patricia Todd, who's gay, says she'll out straight adulterous legislative colleagues who talk about family values when they oppose same-sex marriage.

Heh.

From Huffington Post via Talking Points Memo:

"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,” she wrote on Facebook, according to the TimesDaily. “I will call our elected officials who want to hide in the closet out.”

... Todd said that she will not tolerate "hypocrites."

"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," she told the Huffington Post.

Food for Arkansas thought.
