Nall to Flash for Campaign Cash?

Kind of an interesting little publicity stunt coming from the Loretta Nall for Alabama Governor campaign…

The official press release:

Thanks to political columnist Bob Ingram, Loretta Nall is best known lately for two things—both of them on her chest. “In 55 years of political writing,” Ingram noted in a recent column about a photo of Nall, “that was a first for me—a picture in my column of a woman displaying cleavage … [my mother] wouldn’t have approved of that picture.”

Nall, a well-known medical marijuana activist and the Libertarian Party’s 2006 candidate for governor of Alabama, isn’t one to pass on an opportunity. “When life hands you lemons, you make lemonade,” she says. “When God gives you melons … well, let’s not go there.” But going there she is, with a new fundraising campaign designed to capitalize on Ingram’s touting of her attributes. To raise money for ballot access, Nall is using Flash animations on her campaign website. Contributors get a glimpse of the buxom beauty’s cleavage or waistline—and big donors are promised an uncensored view of “the biggest boobs in Alabama politics.”

All’s fair in love, war and politics, says Nall. “I had to go one of two ways—don a burqa so that maybe people like Bob Ingram will be willing to talk about my actual platform instead of my anatomy, or go with the flow and use dismissive attacks to my advantage. I don’t back down easily. This is, if you’ll pardon the expression, tit for tat.”

Nall faces Alabama’s draconian ballot access restrictions—“the Republicans and Democrats are scared to death of a fair fight,” she says—and must submit 42,000 valid signatures to the Secretary of State by June 6th in order to appear on the ballot with the Democrat and GOP candidates (who face no such hurdle). Her “Flash for Cash” campaign is intended to raise the money required to gather those signatures.

    Surely the biggest boobs in Alabama politics still inhabit the statehouse and governor’s mansion?

  2. Tim West Says:

    How are you gonna match this George? ;)

  3. Chris Moore Says:

    I think if George went to college campuses, set-up a table and a sign that read “Will do your physics homework for votes” then he might do quite well. :)

  4. Matt Sterba Says:

    This is not the way for a party or a campaign to be taken seriously…she’s a disgrace.

  5. Oh Please Says:

    The dirty old men who decided to discuss her anatomy instead of her platform are the disgrace there Matt Sterba. They started it.

    Ms. Nall has simply turned the tables and should be applauded for her witty response and basic capitalist abilities in harnessing the power of the internet to raise money.

    Go Ms. Nall Go
    I wish there were more like her.

  6. Chris Moore Says:

    And if you actually think she exposes her breasts, then you’ll be in for a surprise. The press release clearly states that the animation shows the biggests boobs in Alabama politics.

    this lady disgusts me. she should cover herself up. those mooslims have at least that much right. she brings shame to her family. her uncles should throw acid on her or maybe cut off her ears and nose like they do there in pakafghaniran.

  8. Matt Sterba Says:

    I applaud the cleverness of the campaign.
