    Charged: Stacie Laughton, 31, allegedly called in a bomb threat to a New Hampshire hospital

     

    A New Hampshire ex-official believed to be the first transgender person elected to a state legislature was charged on Thursday with calling in a bomb threat to a hospital, police said.

    Police arrested 31-year-old Stacie Laughton of Nashua on Thursday following the February 27 threat to Southern New Hampshire Medical Center.

    Police evacuated the building but found no suspicious device. An investigation led police to issue a warrant for Laughton’s arrest; the Nashua resident complied.

    Calls weren’t being accepted Thursday at a phone listed for Laughton.

    In 2012, Laughton was elected to the state House of Representatives but never took the seat, resigning after reports of a prior felony conviction raised questions about Laughton’s legal ability to serve.

    The state’s Ballot Law Commission denied Laughton’s request to run again last year, saying Laughton’s 2008 convictions for identity fraud and falsifying evidence disqualified the would-be candidate until 2018, when a suspended sentence ends.

    Laughton was charged on Thursday with making a false report regarding explosives, a felony that can bring up to 7 years in prison if convicted.

    Laughton was released on $50,000 bond and is due back in court in April.

    Laughton expressed remorse for alleged actions and blamed them on an untreated mental illness.

    ‘I have had a mental illness my whole life, and I guess this was my worst break with it. I was untreated for a long time, and I didn’t have medication,’ Laughton told the New Hampshire Union Leader following her arrest.

    ‘I wasn’t trying to hurt anyone, and it was totally out of character for me. I have put a lot behind me, and I never thought I would do this in a million years,’ she told the newspaper.

    Stacie Laughton was born Barry C. Laughton Jr. and was convicted twice in Nashua before she ever turned 20.

    Police told The Patch that in 2002 she was charged with domestic violence/criminal mischief after an argument with her father during which she smashed a plate.

    In 2003 she was charged with sexual assault involving a woman from whom she was renting a rorom.

    ‘Those charges were eventually dropped,’ Laughton told The Patch in 2012 following her resignation from her elected position.

    ‘In fact, she still lives in the city, and we see each other from time to time, and we are pleasant. It’s as if those years never happened,’ she said.

    Laughton said three years ago that she hopes to run for office again someday despite her sordid past. Her criminal history will prevent her from doing so.

    ‘After I got out of prison I felt like it was a new start for me. I began my transformation, from who I had been for all those years, to who I really was,’ Laughton said.

    ‘And ever since that that day, I do something, every day to try to better myself, or help someone else. I am trying to be the best person I can be, and put the past behind me, once and for all. ‘

     

    I could care less if they are transgender or gay or whatever, if they are qualified it does not matter.

    But to have these type of issues that are not known during elections plus a felony record? Is this who we want running our government?

    People we seriously need to start thinking these things through.

  1. All trannies are batshit insane. There are no exceptions.

    Also, how do such people get elected? I will guess that he had a D by his name, since the writer wasn’t snickering about the “Republican tranny.” So the Free Shit Army voted for him, and they don’t care about anything but keeping the welfare checks coming. Doubtless many more votes came from beyond the grave, accompanied by as many more absentee ballots as necessary from nonexistent people manufactured by “community organizations.”

    This is the future. It’s only going to get worse, until it breaks down completely–which may not be much longer.

    • The tranny issue is not even my biggest concern, There was felonies in the past and at least one of a morally deviant nature and obvious mental health issues. Doesn’t anyone look into the backgrounds anymore? They sure do with GOP people but some people are glad to have their special interests protected.
      That is why we are likely to end up with Hillary, Because of the freebies and being a woman.
      It will have nothing to do with qualifications or any type of moral standing. It is already proven she cannot tell the truth.
