I'm not one for talking politics, Part 2

I'm not one for talking politics, but...

Democrat Fred Head is speaking out against his competitor, Republican Agriculture Commissioner, Susan Combs, for writing a romance novel. The book, A PERFECT MATCH, was published back in 1990 (publisher now defunct). He calls her a pornographer for it.

I'm really not one to talk politics in a public setting, but thought this was a relevant event to who I am and what I do. Romance writing always had a certain amount of persecution to it. You have those people who think romance writers and pornographer are the same. But I refuse to be ashamed of what I do for a living. I love people falling in love. What shame is there in that?...

As an update to this story, it seems SUSAN COMBS has won the election. May she serve the people of Texas well.

To me, it's really hard to say which issue won it for her, or if the issue of the Romance novel even affected her votes. It definitely got her publicity outside of Texas, but since I'm not in TX, I don't have my finger on the pulse of the everyday Texan. So, I'd be curious to hear what thoughts were in the heads of voters election day.
