Skip to comments.NH's first openly transgender lawmaker won't take office
Posted on 11/28/2012 6:47:35 AM PST by Past Your Eyes
NASHUA Following a storm of controversy in light of her criminal background, the first openly transgendered person elected to the New Hampshire House will resign her post. I didn't want to have to do this, Rep.-elect Stacie Marie Laughton, D-Nashua, said. There's been a lot of people that have said, 'Stay strong, keep your head up, stay in it.' I'm super disappointed because I was looking forward to this more than anything. It's my lifelong dream to serve my community, and what better place to do it than the city that I was born and raised in.

LOL....you can't make this stuff up, folks.....
Sad that people elected this thing in the first place.
“...serve the community....”
Translation of Ray Buckley’s remarks: “Stacie, just go away. And shut up and make it quick.”
“Stacie” has a promising future as a carnival attraction in Freakshow row.
OMG don’t look at the article. There’s photo of him.
It's a cookbook.
Hey gay, lesbian and transgendered voters.
The democrats got your vote and just tossed you overboard. LOL
You should have seen it being interviewed on the TV news. It should have decided to be a womming before it started going bald.
What the hell is that?(photo).... A female Klingon?
Wow. Not only that....but is that a woman across from him in that pic?
I looked because you said not to look and damn if you weren’t right!
That thing is only 28 years old???
A deeply troubled person who the medical doctors and psychologists are encouraging for their monetary gain.
Dear God. A fat balding man parading as a woman.
He/she needs hair club real bad.
Ugly as she.....it.
The word “openly” in the headline troubles me. It implies that there have already been some who were not open about it.
I will be taking a careful look at my colleagues when we get sworn in a week from today.
Isn’t that from its personal page on Eeeeeeeew Harmony?
It sure didn’t help in Sodom and Gomorrah. The only hope we have is God.
Well thanks for telling me not to look. Of course I had to go and do so.....ewwwwww.
So NH voters put this mentally ill person in office. This is a vivid illustration why Republicans ought to dump the idea of having a primary in this sink hole, much less allowing it to be first to choose the GOP nominee. No wonder they call it “The Stupid Party.”
Somebody needs to post the WHAT NOT TO WEAR photo of Stacy and Clinton. S/he totally needs a bra fitting.
No question. Repent, America...do not procrastinate.
How stupid and perverted are voters in NH?
It has been posted elsewhere that the problem isn't Barack Obama; it is the people that VOTED for him. Here's a perfect example...the problem isn't Stacie; it is the RH voters that elected 'her'.
Pray for the conservatives in Red Hampshire...
Apollo Hair Care is the place to go LOL....
Thanks to homowood and media promotion, people think that voting for the profoundly disturbed is a good thing. This is why the old media is our enemy and must be remembered as such.
Nashua is a city. Far from “typical” New Hampshire. Right on the Massachusetts line. This is one of 400 reps. I am also one of the 400 reps. Please don’t tar the whole state over this one weirdo in this one weird election. In 2010, we elected almost 300 Republicans out of the 400 Reps and 19 of 24 senators. Were we also stupid and perverted then?
She has man hands.
Hah. Dis agree. I left NH for NZ after the 2008 coup. NH is a far gone, rotted to the core and that is coming from a NH native that has property still here in the family with deeds that go back prior to the USA of exsisting!
NH First in the Nation Primary is nothing more than a control mechanism for the the party hacks/azzhats like Sununu to make winners or losers of there chioce kill the conservative candidate and promote the RINO...nothing else. I say give the first in the Nation Status to Wyoming, or Mexico or Ottowa Canada they would do a better job in my former NH resident opinion
eye bleach required
Do those voters in line look like they are trying to NOT look?
Stacie needs “the Hair Club for Men”
or maybe it’s just menopuase
What happened in 2012?
What happen in ‘12? Living in the past is not healthy....
Blame the idiots that moved up there to escape the disaster that is Massachusetts and then immediately started voting for the same types of crooks and pervs that turned Massachusetts into the laughing stock they were trying to get away from!
Many thousands of same-day registrants. Guess who they voted for. The state is lost. There are a couple counties which only have 3 Republican reps each. Last time around, there were two counties with NO Democrat reps.
We are overwhelmed with out of state students and other “come heres”. And, sadly, they all turned out and it’s all legal. That’s why I say the state is lost.
What part of “transgendered” is not OPEN and obvious for all to see? One day you have a bearded one who stands up in the men’s room, the next day one with a light beard who sits down in the lady’s room.
Don’t be so quick to make yourself look foolish. The most reliably Republican part of the state is those towns right along the Mass border which are populated with escapees from Massivetushes - Windham, Salem, Hudson, Derry, Londonderry (for example).
Do you know if that was the case, or just more BS?
You mean a “bro,” or, if you prefer, a “manziere.”
Yes, the stupid party could not even with a super majority fix the voter fraud. Frankly they did not want too.
NH Repbulicans starting with anyone named Sununu should be ignored at a min, tarred and feathered, max.
The TEA party in NH was respondsible for 2010, but, the RINO Party hacks killed off Jack Kimball and the rest is history.... So glad to be out of NH, knowing I have minimal taxes going to the NH and US Gov beast. Life is good.
“Assistant Attorney General Mike Brown said Tuesday that Laughton’s eligibility to run and serve in public office is under review, and he must review all the sentencing documents.
He said the law is not as clear as it could be, and it uses language that includes the final discharge of the sentence.
Once again PROOF POSITIVE the vermin lawmakers and lawyers cannot even agree on their own convoluted laws that we are supposed to follow.
Well Freepers, ignorance of the law should now be the law of the land. Given the tax cheats in congress and the Treasury we should not be held to higher standards as if they cannot understand the law how on earth are we supposed to do it?
The real problem is suburban New Yorkers...they ruined Vermont, Red Hampshire is next.
Any representative can file any legislation that he or she sees fit. No, it wasn’t put on the back burner. That legislation went through the process and it was defeated, thanks (obviously) to all the Democrats and a whole bunch of spineless Republicans. The speaker and the leadership favored it. It didn’t pass. Another piece of evidence that the state of NH is indeed lost.
I was there. I saw it happen. My votes are recorded. We lost.
