Candidate to Stay in Race Despite Photos

FORT WORTH, Texas (AP) - 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.

Walls, a Republican, is competing in an April 13 primary runoff against real estate broker Rob Orr.

3. Yeah- I mean, does he look GOOD in them?
Perhaps he should wear this stuff to work- whatever makes you comfortable is what I say.

BTW, no one is saying the guy is homosexual- we are saying he is a transvestite.

7. Oh- I did not know there was a distinction...
But whatever he likes in private is his business, I guess, so long as he does his job well- I say let the voters figure this one out!!!

But it's still funny that the guy is a Republican :)

5. I think the cross dressing is fine...
...but should a man tit fall out due to a "wardrobe malfunction", well then to the pillory with him!
