In an exclusive interview with WLBT Vicksburg Mayoral candidate Linda Fondren opened up about her past.
"I was a working girl in a legal brothel over 30 years ago," said Fondren. "It's true, my husband was my client. My husband and I have been married for 28 years,"
That interview generated a lot of Facebook comments.
Kathy L Baker "Legal in NV yes, but then you have to consider morality. Do we need things to turn around, certainly. Is this the best role model for the kids??? Then divide that by the choices.....uggggghhhhh!"
Heather Nichole Morris "So someone who worked legally and turned their life around positively and being honest about it would not be a good role model? Wow....if she isn't I don't know who would be!"
Anna-Kathryn Stewart "I have no problem giving second chances but my issue is that she said she doesn't regret it. It may have been legal but still wasn't moral. And before people jump down my throat saying she's better than the current mayor - how about a candidate who doesn't have morality issues?!"
Brenda Jones Love "She told the truth. She didn't sugar coat it. I personally think in MY opinion that she is a very smart business lady and deserves a chance."
Christopher Rooks "Only in Vicksburg."
That was Your Turn and that's also why WLBT will never run out of interesting news to report.
