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.
