Failed AL Governor Has Ditched Wife To Knock Up Lesbians In New Zealand

should've pushed him off

Sad Bill Johnson, Alabama’s former head of economic and community affairs and failed attempted governor of the state, has apparently left his wife and absconded to New Zealand, where he has set off on a task of inserting his johnson into any woman who will have him because he has decided that sanctified life, as authored by his sperm and any egg, is more important than being faithful to his wife and saving the world one lost political seat at a time. In December, nearly two years after he quite nearly became the governor of Alabama (but lost to Richard Bentley), it was revealed that Johnson, a Prattville native, appropriately, has like a zillion babies in New Zealand, where he has been generously donating his sperm to lesbian couples. But at some point he became quite greedy about his generosity, and once there was an earthquake in New Zealand, he was all, “PERFECT, BYE!” and went off to “help” more “lesbian couples.”

Johnson’s actual wife, Kathy, a former Mrs. Alabama (this exists), permitted an interview with The New Zealand Morning Herald, apparently, and announced that her husband is now gone because he is “obsessed” with fathering children. Apparently he wants an active role in these lil babies’ lives, and wants Kathy to live there with him so they can go around visiting babies forever. Via Raw Story, she added:

I will not chase him to the other side of the world so he can be a part-time father to children he created with other women.

It turns out that Mr. Johnson is just making “the best” of a bad situation, namely that his wife is not able to have children, because she had a hysterectomy before they were even married. Martyr (both of them). A Herald reporter found Mr. Johnson and asked him to comment.

Johnson said that his wife was unable to get pregnant and that being a father is “a need that I have.” The newspaper said three New Zealand women were pregnant with Johnson’s children, and at least nine received sperm donations from him.

So, how exactly is this sperm “donated”? Are gay women who want babies the only people who will “receive” Mr. Johnson’s johnson, hence this charitable quest? Or is this all done in the traditional method, into a plastic cup, affording Johnson the opportunity to look at porn and jerk off in a private chamber often and in a way that is not wasteful? The possibilities for how this is justified are…well, there aren’t any. But Johnson’s whole argument was basically, This is what Kathy would have wanted, as if Kathy is dead, or dead inside, because she cannot have children. Wonderful story, wonderful. [Raw Story]

    Everybody needs a hobby. But on a serious note, child support payments are not an issue in New Zealand?

    • sullivanst

      I would think the rules for sperm donors are usually different. Although the whole being involved in the kids' lives doesn't strike me as a normal thing associated with sperm donation, which I thought was typically more of a fire-and-forget deal.

      • HistoriCat

        I read an article a while back about kids who wanted to get in touch with the sperm donor/biological father. For some reason, some people think this is a good idea.

        I look back on my younger days and am relieved that I never tried to get that sweet sperm donor money as advertised in the university newspaper ad.

    This makes me weep with joy. Bless this man, his belief in the sanctity of marriage, and his high family values morals.

    Wait… those were tears of laughter. So, never mind.

  • johnnymeatworth

    Didn't they shoot Lord Of The Cock Rings there?

    Yes, because what every child wants is an egotistical, self-obsessed, unreliable maniac in their lives as a part-time dad.

    This man gives good balls a bad rap.

    Fuck. NZ was on my short list of places to flee when the revolution comes. I'm fleeing to escape rightwing assholery, so this will not do.

    I guess it's not coincidence that this guy is named "Johnson."

  • anniegetyerfun

    Yes, being a "father" is a "need that I have" just "not with the woman that I married and promised to love and cherish" which is why we couldn't "adopt children who need homes."

    • Negropolis

      I think what's worse is that he had this desire, and then married a woman who he knew couldn't give him a biological child. This is a sick man with his literal fucking and his mind-fucking, to boot.

  • GuanoFaucet

    Johnson said that his wife was unable to get pregnant and that being a father is “a need that I have.”

    Yes, becoming a sperm donor to several lesbians halfway around the world is a much more sensible way to fulfill this need of yours to be a father than, oh, adopting a kid or two.

    • Pragmatist2

    I love how electable these guys are, until they're found to be utter imbeciles. To have it conversely done would be somehow unAmerican. Seriously. My ire is not for this oddball so much as how his odd-ballity has a *snooze* detector reading every voter's brain, determining it's safe to resume course past their idling judgment-capacitors, and all the way to power status, not even the Mrs. is the wiser for it — LITERally — til shit's hit the fan and gotten it on *everybody.*

    Not to be a jerk but I don't think getting 1.7% of the vote in the GOP primary counts as nearly becoming Governor of Alabama.

    I think I can round out Johnson's reasoning at the end there:

      Portnoy wouldn't complain.

    • http://www.southsidejohnny.com/ Jukesgrrl

      For Philip Roth, it would be a 700-page novel, not a joke. And a movie to follow, with narration by Claire Bloom.

  • http://dismalpseudoscientist.wordpress.com Equality_Joe

    But no, seriously, most places actually have rules about sperm donation frequency, because if you spread your seed too widely in too small a community, and too anonymously, you end up creating a non-trivial risk of promoting unwitting incest, as half-siblings who don't know they're half-siblings end up together.

    My guess is, Mr. Johnson from Alabama hasn't actually considered this issue, for some reason.

    • joobajooba

      Maybe they don't have laws against that in Alabama. I'm sure seed has been widely spread there for centuries.

    • http://www.southsidejohnny.com/ Jukesgrrl

      Yes, I definitely remember the amount of Mick Jagger seed sown in London debated by the House of Commons at one time.

    • Biel_ze_Bubba

      My guess is, this was already a problem for Mr. Johnson before he left Alabammy.

    • Negropolis

      Sounds to me as if New Zealand's the one that hasn't considered this, or else his ass would have been on a no-fly zone, there.

    • BruceMajorsky

      Yes they are supposed to monitor and limit it. But they still allow you to have more than one or two. And you can also donate to multiple facilities. And there is some non-clinic donation going on too. I have a 14 year old from donating to a friend of a friend.

  • MissTaken

    I'm sure the lesbian couples that used Johnson's sperm to start their families are absolutely thrilled that he is showing up and wanting to play daddy. Just thrilled.

    • Lascauxcaveman

      They'd have so much to talk about!

    This sounds like the plot of last week's "Law & Order: SVU" — in the first act, before further plot twists that sent the story back and forth over the shark. That show has become just as laughable as "CSI: Miami."

      But, it does have Mariska Hargitay's boobs on it.

    Actually, isn't it nice to see a Republican who actually practices this whole "sex is for procreation" thing? Given that so many Republican leaders (Rush Limbaugh, Ann Coulter, just to name two), have failed to uphold their end of the bargain, and are letting the Mexicans and Asians out bread us all, it is nice to know what soon New Zealand will be filled with little redneck lesbos.

    Well, that, and it's not exactly like you get to meet the donor to judge his character, or anything. All of the write-ups on the guys must be something straight out of a personal ad.
