In the past week @RobertFoster4MS has received a lot of attention over his refusal to let a female reporter do a ride-along, attributing it to “the Billy Graham rule.”

Is this just a Mississippi thing or is the “Billy Graham rule” now sweeping the nation?

A second gubernatorial candidate in Mississippi has stated he will not be alone with a woman who is not his wife, arguing that “appearances are important.”
Former state Supreme Court chief justice Bill Waller Jr. told Mississippi Today, “I just think it’s common sense.”
“I just think in this day and time, appearances are important and transparency’s important, and people need to have the comfort of what’s going on in government between employees and people,” Waller told the publication Monday.
You may remember from a post here last week that another Republican running for governor of Mississippi, Robert Foster, claimed that he could not have a female reporter “ride along” with him on his campaign out of respect for his wife.
So if these terrified little boys are too afraid to be in the same room with a woman alone, how do they add female staff members to their administraiton if elected?
Would Mississippi then be run by a “No Girlz Allowed” boy’s club until the next election?
I’ll tell you what I think. I think Mississippi is overdue for a strong female governor to whip these chauvinistic asses, take over the state, and put these man babies in their place.
