Shadrack McGill, Alabama Republican, Hounded By Strippers, Facebook Women; Wife Not Happy

Posted: Updated:

Women can't get enough of Alabama state Sen. Shadrack McGill (R), he and his wife revealed in a series of announcements this week.

McGill's wife, Heather, first called attention to what she described as a pattern of unknown women reaching out to her husband, sending the pack of suitors a warning in a Facebook post on his page earlier this week.

"I have been silent for long enough!! NO MORE! Multiple times since being in office he has gotten emails from women (who may not even be real) inviting him to explore, also sending pictures of themselves. NO MORE!!!" she wrote. "Shame on you! You know who you are. Next time everyone will know who you are!! For I will publicly share your name before we 'unfriend' you ... This is the 'behind the scenes' garbage that political life brings. I will not turn a blind eye to it any longer!"

On Tuesday, McGill revealed the depth to which fans had gone.

"During the campaign, we had two strippers come to my house at 1 o'clock in the morning," McGill, who was elected in 2010, told AL.com. McGill also said that another stripper had shown up at his place of business during the same period, claiming to have a flat tire. She left after giving his employee a business card with the name of the club where she worked.

According to McGill, the security of his Facebook account had also been compromised in years past.

"Shortly after taking office, a couple of times my Facebook was hijacked and women sent me pictures of themselves half-naked, saying, 'I had a great time last night with Shadrack McGill.' That sort of thing," he told AL.com.

The McGills' strange predicament earned them an interview on ABC News' "Good Morning America" on Wednesday, where the two said they might have to quit Facebook ahead of an upcoming reelection campaign. McGill, who has campaigned as a Christian conservative, has said the social network has become a mirror of the nation's moral decline.

It hasn't been all strippers and risqué Facebook pictures for McGill, however. As a lawmaker, the Republican has raised eyebrows for other reasons. Earlier this year, McGill compared abortion to "destroying an eagle egg," while arguing in favor of fetal personhood legislation. And in 2012, he claimed that raising teacher pay would violate a "biblical principle" by encouraging those who weren't "called to teach" to enter the profession.
