Second Mississippi gubernatorial candidate says he will not be alone with a woman who is not his wife



Updated 12:04 PM ET, Wed July 17, 2019




(CNN)A second Republican candidate for Mississippi governor said he would not be alone with a woman who is not his wife in a professional or personal setting, after fellow candidate state Rep. Robert Foster's decision to deny a female reporter's request to accompany him on a campaign trip for the same reason.

Bill Waller Jr., the former chief justice of the Mississippi Supreme Court, told Mississippi Today that he subscribes to what is known as the "Billy Graham rule," named after the prominent evangelist, in which a man avoids being alone with women other than his wife.

"I just think it's common sense. I just think in this day and time that appearances are important ... transparency's important. And I think that people need to have the comfort of what's going on in government between employees and people. And there's a lot of social issues out there about that," Waller told the news outlet on Monday.

He said his goal "is to not make it an issue so that everyone's comfortable with the surroundings and we can go about our business."
CNN has reached out to Waller's campaign.

Weird.

5. I, for one, am glad they are willing to admit that they have no self control

And are too afraid of their baser impulses to be alone with a woman who is not bound to them.

After all, MOST normal men in our society are perfectly capable of treating women as equals and are not worried that they will ravish a woman if left alone together. These poor GOP men seem to have less self control than the average kindergartner.

9. That just sounds like he's stupid

Why can't he be alone with a woman? Doesn't he trust himself not to make unwanted advances OR if he's the target of advances not be able to say "no thank you"?

Republicans have the mentality of simplistic children. No not just of a child, but of pure simpletons.

15. Or maybe he doesn't trust a strange woman

not to make up stuff that didnít happen?
Now everyone knows that he has a witness to every encounter he has with someone. No one can say there was inappropriate touching or advances because there is always a witness.

16. So with this fucking logic, lets say zippy the pin head walks into a place

that has no patrons, except a woman bar keeper for example.......................does this misogynistic a**hole have a sign around his neck...........................I cannot be alone with another woman that isn't my wife........................sounds like a bunch of insecurity horse shit..................of deep seated paranoia.........................and he doesn't trust himself or the other person that may be a woman with him......................grow-up, how fucking demeaning and insecure......................and he wants to be Governor of Mississippi, maybe this jerk-off should come into the 21st Century...........................

than non evangelicals? So maybe this is just a ruse to fool their wives.

23. So they're both admitting they're likely to sexually assault a woman not their wife?

Republicans being honest is refreshing.

Then the question asked should be, did the Billy Graham Family Values required chaperone merely watch, or participate?
