Texas House Race Heats Up - Photos of Republican Cross-Dresser
<snip>

DALLAS (Reuters) - What started as a dull runoff race to field a Republican candidate for a seat in the Texas House of Representatives has heated up due to a controversy over cross-dressing.

The Fort Worth Star-Telegram reported on Tuesday photographs of candidate Sam Walls dressed in women's clothes have circulated among political leaders in Johnson County, south of Fort Worth. Local Republican leaders confirmed separately that they had seen the photographs of Walls in a wig, dress and high heels.

Walls, who has the endorsement of several leading Republicans in the state and was expected to win the run-off, was not available for comment. He said in comments printed in the Star-Telegram that he will not drop out of the race due to a campaign of blackmail.

"Through intermediaries, my opponent told me to drop out of the campaign or the private information would be released," Walls told the paper. "Now my opponent is using the information in an attempt to intimate that I am a homosexual, which I am not."

10. You know, I bet they're pulling HARD for the other guy to win.
You wanna talk about a lonely guy. If Sam wins, they will freeze him out.

3. The real question is THIS...
If you are a person with "odd" behaviors, WHY ON EARTH would you even consider running for public office???

It's one thing to have the wife come home early from shopping, and catch you wearing her underwear, but it's entirely another thing to open your family up to the embarrassment that is very likely to ensue when an opponent "uses" information about you..

What the opponent did was nasty, BUT Mr Orr has rocks in his head for even running ...

8. Maybe it shouldn't, BUT
in the real world, no stone goes unturned when an opponent is looking for ammunition..

I feel badly for his family.. Too bad that the muckrakers who dragged this out cannot be brought down as well..

7. Everybody talks about the pictures
But nobody's showing them. I claim this guy will probably look better than Arlene Wohlgemuth ever did.

9. Ha! She's probably keeping them from being published.
I can hear her now, "The real crime is not the cross-dressing, it's that he is prettier than me."
