Ivey, pictured above, became governor in April of past year, following the resignation of former Gov. Robert Bentley.

In a Tuesday afternoon press conference, Dawson said $800,000 of the state's money was given to the recently shuttered LGBTQ group Free2Be since 2015 from grants from the Alabama Department of Economic and Community Affairs department.

A spokesman from Ivey's office responded to Todd's allegation as "a disgusting lie".

Ivey, 73, is single and has been divorced twice.

On both Twitter and Facebook, Todd linked to another AL.com article concerning one of Ivey's challengers, Republican gubernatorial candidate and evangelist Scott Dawson, criticizing her over state funds going to the LGBT non-profit Free2Be.

The latest news from the entertainment industry is rather a treat for all moviebuffs who follow both Hollywood and Bollywood. Deadpool 2 is ready for release on Friday and the insane superhero film has an Indian connection especially with Bollywood.

Ivey also disputed the suggestion she supported Free2Be.

"The Ivey Administration has betrayed Alabama values, by giving almost $1 million dollars, taxpayer dollars to Free2Be, an activist organization that promotes transgenderism and alternative lifestyles to Alabama children", Dawson said. Before 2002, she was a registered Democrat. She succeeded to the office of governor in 2017 after Robert Bentley resigned, pleading guilty to campaign-finance violations related to an alleged extramarital affair he had with a former staff member. She has no children. "In 2013, Alabama was notified that at least 10 percent of the grant dollars given to the state under the Victims of Crime Act (VOCA) must be given to agencies that provide services to underserved populations", the release said. "Kicking us around to score points, and I think people in Alabama are sick and exhausted of these kinds of politics, old style of politics". "So that's what I plan to do, vote for Republican nominee Roy Moore".

As for Patricia Todd, she is sticking by her story.

Eva Kendrick, HRC Alabama state director, said at the time: "We are deeply disappointed that the legislature and the governor took on this unnecessary, discriminatory bill instead of focusing on how to improve the lives of all Alabamians, no matter who they are or whom they love". "It's mind boggling. And these are the people that call themselves Christians". Governor Ivey does not support the values pushed by this organization.

As for Governor Kay Ivey, perhaps the lady doth protest too much.
