Heather McGill, the wife of Alabama state senator Shadrack McGill, recently took to Facebook to warn other women not go near her man. Particularly, Mrs. McGill's warning is directed at strippers. 

As Al.com reported:

"During the campaign, we had two strippers come to my house at 1 o'clock in the morning," Sen. McGill said. He said the women were beating on the door.

"Me and my wife both got up to address the situation. They did inform me that they were strippers at a particular club in Huntsville," Sen. McGill said. He declined to name the women's place of employment, or to speculate about why the women came to his door. (He did, jokingly, say they were there due to "car trouble.")

The original Facebook post was directed more broadly, and did not include the word "stripper."

"Attention Facebook: This is Heather McGill (senator McGills wife) for anyone that does not know that," said the wife, posting it using her husband's account.

I am very blessed to be the wife of a God fearing, hard working, ministry minded, loving father and husband and it is not just my right but my duty to lovingly serve him by protecting him! I have been silent for long enough!! NO MORE! 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!!! It is a shame that people are so heartless that they would try to split up families. We have children that look at our face books from time to time! Shame on you! You know who you are. Next time everyone will know who you are!! For I will publicly share your name before we "unfriend" you. 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! This is the "behind the scenes" garbage that political life brings. I will not turn a blind eye to it any longer! I remember years ago my Pastors wife standing before the congregation preaching to the young women about their dress which had gotten out of hand and she boldly stood before them and spoke the truth. I boldly stand before you today and declare that I will stand beside my husband, support him, love him, and protect him at ALL cost!!!! Those of you who know who you are consider yourself warned! Those of you who understand my heart, thank you for listening and may God bless your families!

Mrs. McGill acknowledges her post might go viral, but figures it's worth it -- and could even strengthen the marriages of others. "This may go viral and if so my prayer is that it strengthens marriages and families across this district, our state, and our country!" she writes.

Here's a picture of the couple (via Facebook, of course):
