Oregon Town Elects Nation’s First Transgender Mayor

One of the more stranger outcomes of last weeks elections was the outcome of the mayor’s race in the small town of Silverton, Oregon where the voters elected Stu Rasmussen Mayor. What makes Stu Rasmussen’ s election a little odd is that he is a cross-dresser.

“In a week when America loudly chose its first African-American president, Silverton quietly made Rasmussen the country’s first openly transgender mayor, according to the Gay and Lesbian Victory Fund, a group that works to help openly lesbian, gay, bisexual or transgender people win elected office.

Rasmussen unseated incumbent mayor Ken Hector, with whom he had long clashed — 1,988 votes to 1,512. Because Rasmussen’s appearance is no secret, it was policy issues that dominated the campaign. “I’ve blackmail-proofed myself,” said Rasmussen.”
