Yesterday Batwoman announced her candidacy to become the first lesbian mayor of Washington, DC. Batwoman aims to unseat current Mayor Adrian Fenty. If elected, Batwoman would not only become the first openly lesbian mayor of DC, but she would also be the first superhero and the first Jewish mayor of our nation's capital.
'I have spent the majority of my life focused on building stronger communities, fighting violent crime and corruption and advocating equality for all residents,' says Batwoman. 'My father instilled in me the values of hard work and commitment to service. I have taken those lessons I learned as a girl and have applied them to my adult life as a crime-fighting super hero.'
