You Can’t Make This Shit Up

And believe it or not, this has nothing to do with Barbie McMooseShit.

From MassInsanityResistance:

Senate – FIRST SUFFOLK (South Boston, Dorchester)

D – JACK HART, 62 G St., Boston [INCUMBENT]  *H*

R – ALTHEA GARRISON, 98 Howard Ave., Boston

Comment: Althea Garrison has supported MassResistance and collected hundreds of signatures for us, so we’re returning the favor, despite what people may say. Jack Hart is a disaster. Go Althea!

That’s MassResistance’s comment.

So – you’re wondering….So?

Who’s Jack Hart?

I don’t know.

Who’s Althea Garrison?  From TransAdvocate:

Running for office in 2003, Althea Garrison said that a:

most compelling reason why someone should vote for me is that I am different and unique from the other candidates, when candidates run and loose [sic] elections most of them goes back to their obscurity not me I continue to fight and bring issues to the limelight,

and of marriage equality in Massachusetts she said:

“Furthermore, to grant special benefits and privileges to a certain group of people is discriminatory toward heterosexual males and females. The issue of same sex marriage is not like race in which a person has no control over the color of his or her skin of which they were born, same sex is a matter of choice and lifestyle not to be confused or associated with class or race.

Garrison’s stance on marriage equality has gained her the support of the anti-gay rights group MassResistance :

“Althea Garrison has supported MassResistance and collected hundreds of signatures for us, so we’re returning the favor, despite what people may say. Jack Hart is a disaster. Go Althea!”

What makes this story unusual is that Garrison is transgender.

I’ll repeat: You can’t make this shit up.
