MONTGOMERY, Ala. (WTVA) - Alabama Gov. Kay Ivey is denying an accusation that she's a lesbian.

In a tweet, she described the accusation as a disgusting lie being pushed by a paid left wing liberal political operative.

The Republican governor is referring to Democratic State Rep. Patricia Todd, the state's only openly gay lawmaker.

Todd posted on social media that someone needs to out Ivey already, that she had heard for years that Ivey's gay.

All this comes as Ivey is running for a full term as governor.
