KEENE New Hampshires first trans, anarchist, Satanic candidate for county sheriff says shes not getting a lot of support from the Republican Party.
I cant imagine theyre happy about this, said Aria DiMezzo.
DiMezzo, who is running as a Republican with the campaign slogan F*** the Police, said Friday she hasnt had any help or support for the county or state GOP. DiMezzo won the Republican nomination for Cheshire County Sheriff Tuesday night running unopposed in the primary. Shell now square off with popular incumbent Democrat Eli Rivera, who is running for his fifth term.
Marylin Huston, Cheshire County GOP chair, congratulated her on her victory. Huston consistently referred to DiMezzo as he during the interview, despite the candidate identifying as female.
He did very well with the primary and that was wonderful, Huston said.
DiMezzo comes from the Free Keene group of Libertarian activists that produced Nobody, a gubernatorial candidate who changed his name from Rich Paul to Nobody. She also hosts an internet radio show where she is referred to as She-Male. Free Keene started as an off-shoot of the Free State Project of Libertarians, but the Free State Project has since distanced itself from Free Keene.
Huston said DiMezzo only ran as a Republican because of problems getting Libertarian candidates on the ballot. Huston said DiMezzo never showed up to the GOP meetings and candidate events, even though she was invited.
Aria really came into the Republican party because he was unable to get onto a Libertarian ballot, Huston said.
DiMezzo signed up to run as a Republican two days before the deadline when she found out long-time Republican candidate Earl Nelson was not running. DiMezzo said she would be willing to be more supportive of the GOP agenda if the party was supportive of her.
Theyre clearly not on my side, DiMezzo said.
There was an effort in Rindge to write Nelson in as a candidate after concerns were raised on social media about DiMezzos gender, religious beliefs, and politics. Nelson got more than 200 write-in votes on Rindge on Tuesday night.
People of Rindge did a phenomenal job. Very well done, DiMezzo said.
There was no concerted effort to keep DiMezzo from getting the nomination, Huston said, though Huston heard from many people who wanted to write in a different candidate instead of DiMezzo.
I guess thats just part of the whole political scene, Huston said.
Huston said DiMezzo is welcome to be part of the GOP, but some people may have disagreed with her positions.
If you look at their social media and their political statements they really do not fall in line with the Republican message, Huston said.
DiMezzo said the GOP in Cheshire County has only itself to blame for her candidacy. She ran in 2018 as a Libertarian and got around three percent of the vote.
I shouldnt have won this freaking primary. I should have gotten crushed, DiMezzo said.
DiMezzo wants to end the prosecution of drug crimes, sex work, illegal immigration, and anything else that she says do not have an actual victim. She said in a lot of ways, shes to the left of Rivera.
Im more liberal than he is, DiMezzo said. Theres tons of things people get fined for, arrested for, that dont actually have any victims.
New Hampshires RNC Committeeman Chris Ager declined to comment.
Still, I find that chin rather disconcerting.
I think I may have voted for this guy on Tuesday.
I probably should withhold judgement until I see him in his Sheriff’s uniform.
Not exactly Elvira, is he.
Ruth Graham was right when she quoted her infamous statement to Billy.
>> F*** the POLICE
Thats what the sign says.
This one is quite the contradiction.
A ballchinian, perhaps?
Looks like there’s a Republican on the ballot in NH that you can vote for without the other mommies being mean to you at soccer games. Very progressive.
Kind of like when an actual Nazi won the Republican nomination for the Illinois 3rd congressional district —also unopposed —and state and local GOP were asleep at the wheel. A Republican wasn’t going to win there wnyway, but couldn’t they have at least run someone against the kook?
May it ever be so.
I seriously doubt it’s a Republican. I think this is a stunt.
I am SO glad we got out of that commie sh*thole several years ago.
OMG Salamander how does a trans, anarchist get to be a GOP candidate WTH!!!
His uhh Her .. Uhhh It’s bumper sticker
Elect Evil .. There’s a little bit in all of us.
Looks like a local MaryKay rep wannabe.
Full disclosure: I was referring to the STATE of New Hampshire; not Keene specifically. Never went NEAR that town.
