Michelle Bruce, the transgender city council woman in Riverdale Georgia, lost reelection (via Daimeon at PHB):
In Riverdale, Bruce — surrounded by supporters from Georgia Equality and the Human Rights Campaign — dabbed her eyes as the results were read. Her loss came a day after a Superior Court judge threw out a lawsuit by two losing City Council candidates that alleged she lied to voters when she ran as a woman.
"I think the lawsuit had something to do with it [the loss]," she said. "I think we have a lot of work to do in Clayton County, especially Riverdale. I think we need to come together and the bigots need to go."
