THE GUERRILLA ANGEL REPORT — [UPDATE (Nov. 30) -- She resigned again. See below.] The on again, off again short political career of newly elected New Hampshire state Rep. Stacie Laughton is apparently on again. Her words: “I’m reconsidering, and I’m seeking the advice of professionals and through social media.”

Laughton made the news shortly after being the first trans person elected to the statehouse. But made bigger news when it was learned she has a previous felony conviction: http://lexiecannes.wordpress.com/2012/11/14/updated-2-ttrans-woman-legislator-resigns-trans-woman-elected-to-new-hampshire-state-legislature/

From The New Hampshire News: On Laughton’s Facebook page, she asked her 1,368 friends Wednesday whether she should give up or continue. Four hours later, nine people had urged her to stay put and explore the legality of the situation.

Republicans in the state are still calling for Laughton to resign. Felons are allowed to run for office in NH under certain conditions. Apparently the state Attorney General is reviewing the matter. Their decision likely to be the final arbitrator of whether Laughton decides to stay or go.

Laughton is schedule to appear on a local TV show to explain her decision on Nov. 29th if my information is correct.

Stay tuned!

UPDATE Nov. 30, 2012 It looks like she resigned again.

From the Nashua Telegraph:

“Those who thought she should vacate the N.H. House seat got their wish Thursday when Laughton signed her resignation letter on a local cable access television station.”

  1. “Make up your mind woman”!!! What is her current status other than very confused….grrrrh

  2. The irony. Months ago I posted on my blog (cosmotologicaljourney) that there was no way I could take this person seriously as trans or otherwise. Not ofter reading their comments and watching them in a local news interview. Now, the poor people of her district in NH have been duped by this scumbag. This person (i consider them a man in a dress) has defamed so many of us who try to do the right thing.

  3. There is huge competition out there and it’s important to get started
    on the right foot and hit the ground running, but
    few business owners know how the world of online marketing works.
    Everything depends on the location of their customers websites on this
    page of results. They can help your website reach its potential, and it
    will cost only a fraction of the money you would
    spend for professional SEO that may not always deliver as promised.
