There has been a step backward in our march toward progressive utopia. Stacie Laughton, the first transsexual freakazoid to be elected to the New Hampshire House of Representatives, did not last the month. If only Barack Hussein Obama’s comparably farcical election had been as short-lived.
Despite [its] resolve to take office next week, the case of State Representative-Elect Stacie Laughton has taken a legal turn, forcing [it] to resign [its] seat.
Based on the language of NH RSA 607-A:2:1 it appears Laughton, a convicted felon who served four months in Belknap County House of Corrections, would have been ineligible to serve for six more years had [it] not decided to step down. …
Laughton, who is transgender, was convicted and served time while still living as a man, under the name Barry Laughton.
Although a felon in New Hampshire has the right to run for office and vote once they’ve fulfilled the terms of their sentence, another question was raised earlier Tuesday with the AG’s office — whether Laughton was legally able to serve as a state representative due to the open status of two concurrent suspended sentences.
Laughton was sentenced in July of 2008 on three charges. Two of them — 7 1/2 to 15 years for conspiracy to commit credit card fraud and 3 1/2 to 7 years for the falsifying physical evidence — were suspended pending 10 years of good behavior. …
Although [it] did fulfill the terms of [its] 12-month sentence on conspiracy to commit fraud, since two of the convictions against [it] were suspended pending 10 years good behavior, [it] has six more years to wait for [its] chance to run for office.
Cheer up, moonbats; the news isn’t all bad. Within six years New Hampshire will have been completely overrun by Massholes attempting to escape the taxes they impose on themselves back in Taxachusetts. The liberal values that found champions in long-serving politicians like murdering degenerate commie Ted Kennedy, child-molesting homosexual Gerry Studds, and repulsive pervert Barney Frank will assure Laughton’s success when it becomes eligible to try again.
