State Senator’s Wife Gets National Attention For Facebook Warning
WOODVILLE, Ala. (WHNT) – The wife of an Alabama Senator has received national attention for her warning to women posting inappropriate pictures on her husband’s Facebook page.
Heather McGill, wife of strict State Senator Shadrack McGill (R-District 8), posted a warning to urge women to stop asking her husband to “explore.”
McGill tells WHNT News 19 that she made the post on Facebook Monday night after yet another inappropriate message.
“I received the message, “she said. “It came through on his phone and I looked at it. Deleted it. Then blocked her. Did the message and then hit send. Or post. Then read it to him when he came in.”
The post has gone viral online, with several hundred shares and comments. The couple was also interviewed on ABC’s Good Morning America on Wednesday.
The post reads:
“Attention Facebook: This is Heather McGill (senator McGills wife) for anyone that does not know that. This may go viral and if so my prayer is that it strengthens marriages and families across this district, our state, and our country! I am very blessed to be the wife of a God fearing, hard working, ministry minded, loving father and husband and it is not just my right but my duty to lovingly serve him by protecting him! 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!!! It is a shame that people are so heartless that they would try to split up families. We have children that look at our face books from time to time! 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. I love my husband and my children too much to sit here and allow this to go on and will not give the enemy anymore foothold into my family! This is the “behind the scenes” garbage that political life brings. I will not turn a blind eye to it any longer! I remember years ago my Pastors wife standing before the congregation preaching to the young women about their dress which had gotten out of hand and she boldly stood before them and spoke the truth. I boldly stand before you today and declare that I will stand beside my husband, support him, love him, and protect him at ALL cost!!!! Those of you who know who you are consider yourself warned! Those of you who understand my heart, thank you for listening and may God bless your families!”
During his campaign in 2012, Senator McGill said strippers showed up at his home in the middle of the night.
The McGills lives in Woodville and have six children.
