After underdog and outsider Bill Lee won the Republican gubernatorial primary election yesterday, in a highly competitive race with several contenders, Representative Diane Black blamed her loss on pornography.
Black had attracted criticism in May after remarking that pornography was a root cause of school shootings.
In a stunning upset, Black came in third in the primary election, despite leading in most polls until Bill Lee’s recent surge, having the endorsement of Vice President Mike Pence, and spending millions of dollars of her own money.
It was not clear if Black’s criticism of pornography was regarding its depiction of fornication, or regarding the decline in quality since the “Golden Age of Porn” in the ’70s.
Sources say that after conceding defeat, Black dropped an ice cream cone she was eating and blamed it on porn.
