Politician leaves wife over his addiction to donating sperm

No, it isn't a euphemism; Bill Johnson, a former gubernatorial candidate in Alabama and onetime member of the Birmingham city council, has reportedly left his wife so he won't have to stop non-sexually donating sperm to women, primarily lesbian couples, who want to conceive. In fact, so enamored is he of spreading his genes that he's moving to New Zealand to be closer to the ten women who used his donations and be there when the children are born. Donations he made without telling his wife, who he is said to be unable to have children with. Johnson plans to impregnate even more women, which is raising concerns with New Zealand fertility specialists. (It is a rather small country for so many half-siblings.)

I'm sure his wife is better off without him. He sounds like a creepy guy.

Why couldn't they use a surrogate mother? Oh, I guess maybe that's what he's doing... What a jerk. I feel sorry for his poor wife. You'd think that if he truly loved her, he would have PAID for a surrogate, or perhaps they could have adopted a needy child. This guy is just weird.

 I think it is time for his wife to celebrate!  He is a jerk...and I wouldn't exactly call this an addiction.  He plans on being close to these children.  This man is getting himself a family.

There's usually porn in the sperm collection rooms to, uh, help along the donation process.  Maybe he's too inhibited to look at porn anywhere else, and that's what he's addicted to...

I would feel nervous, if I was one of the couples using his sperm, to learn that he was moving to my area.  He seems all kinds of fucked up.

Hmmmm, strange.

I wonder though, if he's moving closer to the women in order to be able to be there for the kids if they''ll get child support?  That could be a whole lot of kids to pay for.
