Finally, a politician who take principled stands on the issues:

Candidate to stay in race despite photos

A candidate for the Texas House rejected calls to withdraw from the race after photos of him in women’s clothing began circulating.

Sam Walls, 64, said he will not give in to “blackmail” from opponents who are trying to use “very old, personal information” to force him out of the race.

“Now my opponent is using the private information in an attempt to intimate that I am a homosexual, which I am not,” Walls said in a statement.

So, it it okay to be a cross-dresser in Texas politics if you’re straight, but not if you’re gay?
