How many other politicians are felons ... or worse? Come on, this is just a lame excuse. Show me a clean politician and I'll show you a liar.

I am not a Democrat! But I am a Transexual. Most TSes I've known have opened credit cards in their female ID. It is a common practice. As long as the bills are paid, where's the fraud? Get a life! And ease the name change regulations!

“Laughton, recently elected as one of three lawmakers to represent Hillsborough County House District 31, is a convicted felon and served 4-1/2 months in jail in 2008 for conspiracy to commit credit card fraud,” The Laconia Daily Sun reports.“She was also convicted of tire slashing and at one point reportedly admitted she faked illness to gain an ambulance ride from Weirs Beach back to the heart of Laconia.”

So... you're good with convicted felons, those convicted of conspiracy to commit fraud? Seems to me a bit more than just opening a credit card account under a female ID.

And, before you go off on a bigoted rant, I'm a big fan of Jennifer Leitham, so my comment has nothing to do with trans-gendered people. I just have a problem with felons.

Actually, it is possible. In some states if you give incorrect information on anything, incorrect meaning it doesn't match previous records, it is considered fraud even if done for innocent reasons. Though there are no details mentioned as such, that I saw, it is possible that she tried to open a bank account under the name she chose and someone didn't like it.

But I say again, what politician is clean? Name one, and I know there's dirt on them.

Whether politicians are clean or not isn't the issue, and certainly worthy of its own discussion, one immutable fact remains, that being, a convicted felon.

Make as many excuses for the behavior as you want, you just can't change "convicted felon."

You also know that we are freeing, with reparations, many people from the jails exonerated by new evidence, and evidence of mistrials, all the time. A conviction does not inherently mean they are guilty of anything, it just means someone made a mistake, be it them or someone else, and someone else is always a possibility.

All you see is "Convicted Felon". Martha Stewart is a convicted felon! Go read the details! You won't find much, her Broker advised her to sell a stock before it tanked! I wish my brokers had done the same for me. I cursed them for not doing it! They were happy to take my money in comissions! The point is, the jails are full of people who have done essentually nothing and they are now "Convicted Felons"! And, when you're Trans, it's real easy to get convicted of something, anything!

I suspect the managers at the nashua telegraph are gay, transgender or trying to promote that life style
.
Have you noticed the telegraph always place stories about gays or transgenders on the front page with photos??
The telegraph has papers from city hall about the 50 or more social agencies the city funds at a cost to tax payers of over $975,754.00 dollars a year but you won't see that on the front page of the telegraph cause stories about gays or transgenders are more important to the gays running the telegraph.

Just keep promoting your agenda telegraph to hell with the truth.

Oh Boy! Here we go! First off, It isn't a Lifestyle! For some people, it is life! I didn't wake up one and decide I wanted to be a Transexual! After years of not fitting in, I decided I WAS a Transexual! Now! Twist that anyway you want to denigrate me and others like me, but remember "Transexual" is a medical term. We are not "Promoting" a "Lifestyle"! We are trying to gain a little acceptance so the worst of you Cisgendered and Straight people will stop harrassing, assaulting, and murdering us.
