Judge Asked to Rule Georgia Election Void Because of Transgender Candidate
Fox News ^ | November 20, 2007

Posted on 11/20/2007 8:25:50 AM PST by Zakeet

RIVERDALE, Ga. — Two unsuccessful city council candidates in Riverdale say a fellow candidate committed fraud when she ran as a woman.

Georgia Fuller and Stanley Harris — who lost bids for council seats — filed petitions in Clayton County Superior Court last week asking the judge to stop the upcoming runoff election. The lawsuit alleges that incumbent Michelle Bruce — who identifies herself as transgendered and goes by Michelle Mickey Bruce — misled voters by identifying herself as a female during the Nov. 6 election.

The suit, which identifies her as "Michael Bruce," asks a judge to rule the November election results invalid and order another general election.

I find it hard to believe Georgia puts up with the stuff.

The article describes him or her as the incumbent, which suggests that the voters don’t care which or whatsit or whoall the candidate are.

Weird stuff.

The only way they have a case is if he never used the name Michelle before running (in other words, the ballot was the first time he called himself Michelle.)

I noticed the motto on the city seal is “A City That Cares.” Apparently not :)

My guess this suit is mostly to bring publicity to the fact that Michelle is really a man, and that there may have been some questionable activities by the local elections superintendent.

I doubt the lawsuit will have stop the runoff, but it will publicize these issues before the runoff election, which is where voters will get to decide if these issues bother them.

Did Al Gore teach these guys how to dream up bogus excuses to challenge elections when you lose, or did they teach him?

And Clinton misled voters by identifying himself as a middle-class-tax cutter and oh-so-many other things.

So homosexuals have sex with men because they prefer the sexual equipment of men to that of women.

So why is it that some men then get boobs but keep the lower part? Is grabbing your own boobs that much fun?

And who are these “prefer the company of men” guys who hook up with “women” who used to be men and have gone all the way with the surgery? Why not just find a woman to begin with?

Yep, and a lot of the ugliness come from the confrontational expression on its face. Why do these folks delight in shoving their perversions in our faces?

My thoughts exactly. Misrepresenting oneself in an election campaign is done every year, it was the job of these losing candidates to make it known before the runoff election was needed, if they thought it would make a difference to the voters.

Frankly, I would think that this is the sort of gossip that small town America thrives on, and was already well known to the voters before the election. If they want a tranny for a public servant, then why not let them have one?

"....misled voters...?"

Holy crap, if politicians misleading voters were reason to void or stop an election, there would be no elections at all, ever.

The way I read this story, it's the losers who are trying to make this an issue.

Granted, it was more the facial expression that put me off. Likely I should go out and get some coffee as I ran out today.

Ah, coffee, the miracle drug! I'm enjoying cup #2 right now.

Yes, that is a confrontational-looking expression, no doubt. But if somebody had just made me the subject of a lawsuit to overturn an election based on something that I felt was irrelevant to my holding office, I'd be kind of PO'ed, too.

I really don't care what my politicians look like, if we had only 'beautiful' people in public office, we'd be stuck with the John Edwards' of the world instead of the Fred Thompsons. I also don't care what plumbing they have in their pants, as long as they stay away from my pants--the wallet pocket, anyway!

Yikes, a person who cannot decide what gender he/she is, making decisions in government, many which call for good judgment. Defies logic!

How can you claim the public was unaware. Since campaigning against her because of being a transexual was the major campaign theme of some of the participants.

It appears people chose to elect her over whatever alternatives were presented.

If you lost an election to that, why in the world would you attract any more attention to the fact by way of a lawsuit?!!! That’s Darwin Award material, except for the dying part of course.

Many candidates have defrauded us about who and what they were. None of those elections could or should be overturned.

You wouldn't know from the article, but Riverdale is part of the greater metro Atlanta area. We have more than our fair share of freaks.
