In A NH First, ‘Transgender Satanist Anarchist’ Wins GOP Nomination For Sheriff
According to The Hill, self-described “transsexual Satanist anarchist” Aria DiMezzo won the Republican primary for sheriff in Cheshire County, New Hampshire, last week, even after running with the slogan, “F--- the police.”
DiMezzo wrote in a Friday blog post that they “couldn’t possibly have been more upfront about who I am, or my position on things,” the outlet reported.
They expressed surprise at the fact that they won the primary, claiming the electorate was “completely and totally oblivious about who they are voting for.” Some 4,000 people cast votes for DiMezzo in the Sept. 8 primary.
“I’m running for sheriff because I oppose that very system, and the sheriff has the most hands-on ability in Cheshire County to oppose that system,” DiMezzo said. “The system that let you down by allowing me–the freaking transsexual Satanist anarchist–be your sheriff candidate is the same system I’m attacking. I’m sorry, and I know it hurts to hear, but that system is a lie.”
The Hill noted that “DiMezzo will now face popular Democratic incumbent Eli Rivera, who is seeking his fifth term.”
