Newly elected Nashua representative
Laughton a convicted felon

The Telegraph (NH), by DANIELLE CURTIS

Original Article

Posted By:Screwgun, 11/25/2012 1:09:29 PM

NASHUA – Newly elected state representative Stacie Laughton, a Gate City Democrat, has been getting national attention since her win earlier this month, which made her the first openly transgender elected official in the state. But this weekend, that attention turned negative after a story in the Laconia Daily Sun revealed that Laughton served four months in jail in 2008 on felony charges of conspiracy to commit credit card fraud.

Comments:
It´s official. New Hampshire is now indistinguishable from Massachusetts.

People like this have to end up in politics, unions, education, or non-profits to get a job as they can´t get one in the real world.

Except..."she" is a "he."

Democrats not only lie about everything, they will insist the sky is green and then pass laws making it a criminal offense when anyone speaks the truth about it being blue.

Two thoughts. Democrats are always asking the voters to ignore their past and vote for them because of what they can do, but spend a lot of time, money and effort digging into the past of their opponents. What is it Dems? Second, this is a glaring example of what happens when you vote for someone because of their membership in some perceived minority rather than on their character. Hence Obama´s success.

They always blather on about "everyone makes mistakes", etc., etc., etc. But like this?

According to information from the Laconia Daily Sun, Laughton was no stranger to Laconia police.

In addition to the conspiracy to commit fraud charges, Laughton was charged with slashing the tires of a neighbor’s car in 2006. The same year, Laughton reportedly admitted that she faked illness to gain an ambulance ride for herself and her now ex-wife, Lisa Laughton, also a Gate City selectman, from Weirs Beach back toward their home.

Laughton moved to Laconia from Nashua, where she was raised, in 2003. She ran for public office, under the name Barry Charles Jr., multiple times while living in the city, including runs for the City Council, School Board and a state representative seat.

Laughton’s felony conviction stems from a 2007 incident, the Laconia Daily Sun reported Saturday, when Laughton and her ex-wife reportedly opened a credit card in a former neighbor’s name, using it to purchase electronics and pay bills.


I´d almost sooner see a reformed axe murderer in office than a "white collar criminal" who dealt in fraud. And then conveniently changed his gender and name, hoping to leave his criminal past behind.

Why send a decent person? Chances are they will end up corrupted.

Sending someone who is already a convicted felon is much more efficient.

she was born male but identifies as a female. From the picture, I´d say ´´she´´ is having an identity crisis.

I can ´´identify´´ as a yellow lab, but that doesn´t change the fact that I don´t have 4 legs and allover blonde body hair.

For all you NH haters. NH is nothing like Massachusetts. We don´t have a state income tax we don´t have a state sales tax. It is the state where the "Freestaters" went. Because we are surrounded by 3 very liberal states we took it on the chin this election.

On election day there was a lot of fishy things going on. Same day registration in my town logged on a 10% increase in voter registration. This was common across the state. Yes we are looking into who registered and where they live to see if there are any irregularities. Needless to say our checklist people were overwhelmed all day.

To which I might add, #16, that Republicans haven´t always treated New Hampshire well, or tried to take its uniqueness into account.

SAN FRANCISCO – A transgender woman in Northern California has sued the company behind the popular CrossFit workouts for refusing to let her compete in the female division of its annual fitness competitions. The lawsuit brought Thursday by Chloie Jonsson, 34, accuses CrossFit Inc. of violating her rights under a California law that prohibits discrimination on the basis of gender identity. Jonsson´s complaint says she was born male but has been living as a woman since she was a teenager and underwent sex reassignment surgery eight years ago.

MANCHESTER — Engineers have recommended that solar panels on top of a Manchester airport parking garage be repositioned toward the east — rather than the sun-drenched south — to prevent glare that has bothered air-traffic controllers, an airport official said. The recommendation comes as the Manchester-Boston Regional Airport continues to drape tarps over some of the 2,200 solar panels on top of an airport parking garage.

Neurosurgeon Ben Carson says the White House wanted him to apologize for “offending” President Obama after he famously delivered a conservative message at the National Prayer Breakfast last year. Carson, the former director of pediatric neurosurgery at Johns Hopkins Hospital, recalls the events surrounding his 2013 speech in his new book, One Nation: What We Can All Do To Save America’s Future. The Daily Caller obtained an advance copy of the book, which is set for release May 20. “He did not appear to be hostile or angry,” Carson writes of Obama, “but within a matter of minutes after the conclusion of

Since then, I have continued to study the facts and have drawn some conclusions. Here they are. First, it must be admitted that legally, Bundy doesn’t have a leg to stand on. The Bureau of Land Management has been charging him grazing fees since the early 1990s, which he has refused to pay. Further, BLM has issued orders limiting the area on which Bundy’s cows can

President Obama inspired a generation of young people to support his historic election in 2008. And in 2012, despite the struggles of his first term, Mr. Obama still managed to win the support of a full 60% of voters age 18-29. But the man who once dreamed of being a transformative leader in the Reagan mold is inspiring few of those young people to follow his lead. "For all the talk about the movement that elected Mr. Obama, the more notable movement of Obama supporters has been away from politics. It appears that few of the young people who voted

Although the Civil Rights Act, the landmark legislation which just reached its 50th anniversary, made great strides in desegregating the economy, economic discrimination is still widespread, and anti-discrimination legislation alone can never rectify the economic damage inflicted upon blacks by slavery and our Jim Crow apartheid regime. The Civil Rights Act was a mild reform, all things considered, but one conservatives fought with vigor and one many conservatives are still bitter about to this day. When the Civil Rights Act passed in 1964, the primary purpose was to root out discrimination in public accommodations (like hotels and movie theaters)

When President Obama needed a preacher to fulfill the closing prayer duties at the annual White House Easter Prayer Breakfast, he turned to none other than the Episcopal Church’s first openly gay bishop — who said he was as shocked as anyone at the appointment. The Right Rev. Gene Robinson said in a tweet, accompanied by a photo of Mr. Obama behind a podium at the event: “POTUS ‘preaches’ at the Easter prayer breakfast. Then, out of the blue, asks ME to close with prayer. OMG!” Newsmax said he also emphasized that the words he chose to close the breakfast

A Russian fighter jet made multiple, close-range passes near an American warship in the Black Sea for more than 90 minutes Saturday amid escalating tensions in the region, a U.S. military official said Monday. In the first public account of the incident, the official said the Russian Fencer flew within 1,000 yards of the USS Donald Cook, a Navy destroyer, at about 500 feet above sea level. Ship commanders considered the actions provocative and inconsistent with international agreements, prompting the ship to issue several radio queries and warnings.
