Oregon Town Elects Nation's First Openly Transgender Mayor
Fox News ^ | November 7, 2008

Posted on 11/07/2008 8:56:24 AM PST by Zakeet

Barack Obama wasn't the only candidate who made history Tuesday.

On the same day the United States elected its first black president, the tiny town of Silverton, Ore., elected the country's first openly transgender mayor.

Stu Rasmussen served two terms as Silverton's mayor in the 1990s, but he was still living in the closet -- and dressing in men's clothing. He came out a few years ago, proudly donning a skirt and high heels.

On Tuesday, Rasmussen won a third term, by 13 percentage points. He attributes his victory to his deep knowledge of the issues.

Does anyone still honestly think that this country is salvageable?

Anyone?

I’ll just say that I am so glad that I’m not in the Army anymore, because I just couldn’t bring myself to put my life on the line for a populace that has become as sick, twisted, and ignorant as what we have today.

Stu’s ultimate goal is to become the nation’s first President and First Lady simultaneously.

I’m afraid not. Things have gone too far. Now it will take some MAJOR HURTING to get back on track.

At least most on our side are aware of what is going to happen.

Call me dim but, I thought transgender = sex cahnge? Isn’t this sorry soul just a cross dresser? Either way too bad, he looked like a typical business man. now? Scary freak. Strange because silverton is an agricultural area with heavy immigrant population, although it is a bedroom (no pun intended) community for Salem too.

He attributes his victory to his deep knowledge of the issues.

And an uncanny sense of style -- always knowing which pumps and handbag best accessorize his ensemble for that day.

Btw- he's GUILTY !!!and then some!.

Just who are the dimwads who live in that town?

I saw a news report on this—the “guy/girl” whatever the heck it is-
absolutely hideous! If a town elects this as Mayor then there is no doubt that it is over in this country-—over.

He does not think of himself as a woman. He still uses the male pronoun. He is not a trans-gender but a transvestite. Big difference.
I guess he really liked Plan 9 and other great Ed Wood movies.

From his website: “If you value our small-town lifestyle and don’t want to see it disappear, please vote for me in the General Election this November.”

God please have mercy on us.

I must say that although Stu looks pretty plain she still looks better than most members of the NOW gang. :-)

Not all transgendered people look bad though....

I see I’m not the first one to look at that pic and see Eric Idle in drag...but I am the first one apparently to bring up his line from “Nuns on the Run”:

“You call this goin’ straight?”
