Robert Foster, the establishment favorite to win a congressional seat in Mississippi, recently refused to be shadowed by a female journalist, completely ignoring that she is obviously and vocally playing for the other team.
The candidate has been routinely derided for being an establishment “insider”, considered the Manchurian pick for the seat due to his previous support for Democrat-led bailouts for unions and Medicaid, which may explain why conservative media leapt to his defense and marginalized the journalist by ignoring her sexual orientation.
Foster recently made headlines for taking a page from Vice President Mike Pence’s book and refusing to be shadowed by a female journalist unless a male colleague joined her. The entire media lambasted Foster for his allegedly sexist decision, but missed the most glaring, obvious part of his stupidity: the journalist is a proud lesbian who invited President Barack Obama to attend her gay wedding.
Before our decision to run, my wife and I made a commitment to follow the “Billy Graham Rule”, which is to avoid any situation that may evoke suspicion or compromise of our marriage. I am sorry Ms. Campbell doesn’t share these views, but my decision was out of respect of my wife. https://t.co/5tjH2x2g65

The journalist, a woman named Larrison Campbell, said she was informed by Foster that “Perception is everything,” and she would not be allowed to shadow him.
Colton Robison, Foster’s campaign director, offered Campbell an opportunity to follow the candidate but said she would need a male colleague accompanying her, she said in an article in her paper Tuesday.
“Perception is everything,” Campbell quoted Robison as saying. “We are so close to the primary. If (trackers) were to get a picture and they put a mailer out, we wouldn’t have time to dispute it. And that’s why we have to be careful.”
According to Campbell, the decision ultimately stemmed from her gender. “The only reason you think that people will think I’m having a (improper) relationship with your candidate is because I am a woman,” she said she told him.
Apparently Foster’s campaign lacks the opportunity to utilize Google, or even DuckDuckGo, as a quick search would reveal there is little chance the married lesbian would create controversy for his campaign.
In 2013, she invited Obama to her gay wedding:
@BarackObama when you're through with your to-do in Palm Springs tonight, you should swing by the best lesbian wedding ever!

The wedding was written about in the New York Times:
Aline Larrison Campbell and Courtenay Adler Green were joined in a civil union Friday at the Frederick Loewe Estate, an event venue and the former home of the composer, in Palm Springs, Calif. Hudson Morgan, a friend of the couple who became an American Marriage Ministries minister for the occasion, officiated.
Ms. Campbell (left), 34, is known as Larrison. Until last year, she was an assistant in the comedy development department at ABC in Los Angeles. She graduated with honors from Wesleyan University in Middletown, Conn., and received a master’s in journalism from Columbia.
More recently, in 2018, Larrison wrote an article for Architectural Daily explaining why she decided to move her family – herself and her wife – to Mississippi, writing that “During Christmas with my family in 2014, my wife and I announced that she was pregnant with twins.”
Perhaps the mainstream media marginalized Larrison’s sexual orientation as an attempt to make Foster look even more sexist, but the fact that he overlooked this well publicized fact about Larrison suggests, ultimately, his campaign is as incompetent as it is Manchurian.

Joe Biden Admits He Wasn’t “Arrested” In South Africa After Exaggerated Claims
Biden said he was arrested trying to visit Nelson Mandela.
Joe Biden is walking back an exaggerated campaign talking point, after being questioned on his claims of being ‘arrested’ in apartheid-era South Africa trying to visit Nelson Mandela in prison.
Biden all but admitted his claims of being arrested were false in an interview on CNN Friday.
He’s claimed that he was “arrested” in several South Carolina campaign speeches trying to visit the South African political leader.
“This day 30 years ago, Nelson Mandela walked out of prison and entered into discussions about apartheid. I had the great honor of meeting him. I had the great honor of being arrested with our UN ambassador on the streets of Soweto trying to get to see him on (Robben) Island,” Biden claimed at a Columbia campaign event earlier this month. He’s repeated the claims two times since then.
Biden admitted to CNN’s Joe Berman that he was merely stopped by customs police at the airport for a short period of time when arriving in the country with the Congressional Black Caucus for a visit in the 1970’s.
His claims of being arrested during a direct attempt to visit Mandela are equally dubious, considering he was merely stopped in the city of Soweto. Soweto is hundreds of miles away from Cape Town’s Robben Island, where Mandela was imprisoned for decades by the apartheid-era government.
For what it’s worth, the western political leaders such as Joe Biden who were acutely interested in South Africa during the Apartheid era of political repression have largely forgotten about the country and its declining standard of living since then.
