Last week, a Washington Post profile of the South Carolina Republican noted that Graham had helped raise his sister after his parents died while he was in college. “Some of your friends suggested that might be the reason you never got married,” Wallace observed during an interview on Fox News Sunday.

McGhee explained that the Satanic Temple had met the guidelines set by Florida’s Department of Management Services.

Lucy Eades, Breastfeeding Mom, Puts Woman Who Asked Her To 'Cover Up' In Her Place

This time, when mom Lucy Eades was asked to cover up at a recreation center in Burleson, Texas, her husband caught the exchange on camera. He then uploaded the footage to the family's popular YouTube channel (you can watch it above). According to local ABC affiliate WFAA, the mom of four was nursing her 16-day-old while her older daughter was in dance class. An employee of the Burleson Recreation Center asked her to cover up, but Eades stood up for her rights and continued to nurse. "It is state law, I can nurse my child with or without a cover," she said.

And, Eades is right: It's legal to breastfeed in public in all 50 states, and Texas is one of 45 states that have laws that specifically allow women to breastfeed in any public or private location.
