An Alabama politician’s wife is tired of the attention that her husband receives from other women. In a viral Facebook post, Heather McGill, wife of Alabama state Sen. Shadrack McGill, warned aggressive social media users to stay away from her spouse.
"I know that I can't bring about change in other people's lifestyles, but I can protect my household, my husband and my children," Heather McGill told ABC News.
On Monday night, McGill signed in to her husband’s official Facebook page and wrote a scathing post directed at the women that she believes are threatening her marriage. In the post, McGill claims that her husband, who has served in the Senate since 2010, has been solicited for sex on several occasions.
“Multiple times since being in office he has gotten emails from women (who may not even be real) inviting him to explore, also sending pictures of themselves. NO MORE!!!” McGill wrote in the Facebook post. “It is a shame that people are so heartless that they would try to split up families. “
In the interview with ABC News, Sen. McGill described the sort of incident that prompted his wife’s fiery Facebook post. During his 2010 campaign for the Senate, strippers showed up to the McGills’ house in the middle of the night. Sen. McGill also claims that he has received several photos of scantily-clad women on his Facebook page.
Heather McGill told ABC News that the most recent photo, received last Sunday, prompted her to write her viral message. “Next time everyone will know who you are!! For I will publicly share your name before we "unfriend" you,” McGill continued in her post. “I love my husband and my children too much to sit here and allow this to go on and will not give the enemy anymore foothold into my family!”
"I had looked on my husband's Facebook page yesterday and again there was another picture and another email," she told ABC News. "Being that we have daughters, I guess a righteous anger rose up in me to protect my family."
Heather and Shadrack McGill have been married for 14 years and have six children together, ABC News reports. They have also adopted children.
Despite all of the unwanted attention, Sen. McGill has no attention of abandoning his political career. "I was a novice the first time but this time I've got my feet under me," he told ABC News.
