New Hampshire makes history by electing the first ever transgender felon
When the Democrat tide swept back into New Hampshire in the November election the state made history by becoming the first state to ever elect an openly transgender candidate to any office in the country. This was hailed as a great victory by the left, and to be honest I really don’t care how Stacie Laughton decides to live her personal life because it is none of my business–if the people in her district believe she is the one who best represents them then so be it–but we are now learning that she was not quite honest about who she really was when she was a man.
Shortly after winning her election it was discovered that while she was a married man she was a convicted felon with a semi-lengthy criminal record and served jail time yet she didn’t disclose her past with the voters whose trust she hoped to–and did–earn.
She is now claiming that while she didn’t think it was necessary to share her criminal past with the people she hoped to represent that she decided she would tell the truth IF she was caught:
I didn’t feel it was necessary to tell [constituents], but I felt like if it came to light – which it has – I was going to be honest
She didn’t think she needed to be honest unless she was caught, yet she must have known her chances of getting caught before the election were fairly slim considering she committed those crimes while still using her male name, Barry Charles Laughton, Jr, so she probably had an inkling that her past wouldn’t come to light before the election and it didn’t.
To be honest I am stunned that when you file your paperwork to run for an elected office that you don’t have to attest to the fact that you have never been convicted of a crime, and if you do then she did in fact lie when she filed.
The New Hampshire GOP is now calling for her resignation and I think that under these circumstances there is no way in hell she should not feel the pressure to step down.
