Alabama politician Bill Johnson caught in sperm donation scandal in New Zealand

X posted from GD:

Bill Johnson, a former top state official who made a failed bid for governor in 2010, has been living a secret life in New Zealand as a sperm donor for lesbian couples, a New Zealand newspaper reported today.

Johnson, a Republican from Prattville, has spent much of the past year in Christchurch, New Zealand, as a contractor working on the recovery effort from a deadly earthquake that struck the city in February.

The New Zealand Herald reported in its Sunday edition that Johnson, who is married, has been using an alias to meet women who want help getting pregnant. The newspaper said it confirmed at least nine women had received sperm donations from Johnson, and at least three were pregnant.

The newspaper cited fertility medicine specialists in New Zealand who said that donors should not make sperm available to more than four families, to prevent accidental incest and lessen the stress donors and children face if they meet.

1. Imagine the horror of knowing your donor was a Republican!

 

That's worse than finding out your mother was your father's sister.

3. Gay rights supporter in the closet?

He seems to be a good canidate to join the democratic party. So was he afraid of his wife finding out, or the conserative christians he got donations from. With the hypocracy in the republican party these days, I find nothing noteworthy in his behaviour.

4. Well, donating sperm for gay women..THAT would be a problem

in repub. circles.
and making sperm outside of the marital bed, would be a problem for the fundies.
Got to admit, it is a lot more interesting than hiking the Appalachian trail.
