Ivey, pictured above, became governor in April of a year ago, following the resignation of former Gov. Robert Bentley.

Dawson aimed his criticism at Gov. Kay Ivey.

Ivey's office responded to the allegations in a press release.

Ivey, who has been married to a man but is now divorced, has had an interesting trajectory in politics.

On both Twitter and Facebook, Todd linked to another AL.com article concerning one of Ivey's challengers, Republican gubernatorial candidate and evangelist Scott Dawson, criticizing her over state funds going to the LGBT non-profit Free2Be.

"This is a disgusting lie being pushed by a paid liberal political hack". Ivey called the accusation "nonsense".

She also said the grants awarded to Free2Be were federally mandated and that the money came from criminal seizures, and not taxpayer dollars. Before 2002, she was a registered Democrat.

Ivey signed the so-called Child Placing Agency Inclusion Act, which enshrines discrimination into Alabama law by allowing some state-licensed adoption and foster care agencies to reject qualified prospective LGBTQ adoptive or foster parents based on the agency's religious beliefs.

"I am really disappointed in that level of attack", said Public Service Commission candidate Robin Litaker.

Earlier this year, INTO spoke with Todd about Moore's run for the State Supreme Court and she expressed how hard it is to run as a democrat in Alabama.

"It's time to change the conversation and talk about the good things happening in the state", Battle said. "Kicking us around to score points, and I think people in Alabama are sick and exhausted of these kinds of politics, old style of politics".

"If people feel that way, that is extremely sad", Todd added.

"I certainly don't agree with the agenda or the values of that organization", Ivey is quoted as saying in the piece. I don't want anyone to think I'm against standing up to bullying, but this is not about bullying. She is seeking a full term and will face off against three opponents in the Republican primary on June 5.
