Another sad loss of a good politician

In run-off elections in Riverdale, GA, Town Councilwoman Michelle Bruce has lost her bid for re-election.  It's sad the business that caused this to happen was a ridiculous lawsuit charging that she had been fraudulently elected by running as a woman instead of a man.  The truth of the matter is, as Autumn covered, that she has always been open about her Trans-Identity and the fact that she was born Intersexed.  The court dismissed the case the day before the election.

Via the Atlanta Journal Constitution.

In Riverdale, Bruce — surrounded by supporters from Georgia Equality and the Human Rights Campaign — dabbed her eyes as the results were read. Her loss came a day after a Superior Court judge threw out a lawsuit by two losing City Council candidates that alleged she lied to voters when she ran as a woman.

“I think the lawsuit had something to do with it [the loss],” she said. “I think we have a lot of work to do in Clayton County, especially Riverdale. I think we need to come together and the bigots need to go.”

Hall, an Atlanta firefighter, said he felt residents needed a choice since Bruce ran unopposed in 2003.

“The lawsuit gave exposure to things in Riverdale,” Hall said. “The two biggest issues here are credibility and accountability. Once you establish those two, you fix everything else.”

Riverdale was the only Clayton County runoff to attract more than 100 voters.
