Transgender Candidate Who Ran as Woman Did Not Mislead Voters, Court Says
"The Georgia Supreme Court ruled Monday that a transgender politician did not mislead voters by running for office as a woman.
"The court dismissed a lawsuit filed by two opponents of the politician, Michelle Bruce, who was born Michael Bruce, that said she disguised her sex while seeking re-election last year in Riverdale, Ga.
"...Gay rights groups celebrated the decision. 'Accusations of fraud only show the accuser's ignorance of transgender lives,' said Cole Thaler, a lawyer with Lambda Legal, a gay rights organization."
