We take you now to Georgia where Michelle Bruce, a transgender city council member, lost a re-election bid in a runoff Tuesday after a lawsuit that claimed she tried to fool voters by running as a woman.
Bruce got 223 votes, compared to 308 votes for Wayne Hall. I'm really worried about 223 people in Georgia right now. They get to vote for President!
Bruce, 46, landed one of Riverdale's four council seats in 2003 after running unopposed. She was believed to be the state's first transgender politician. Bruce captured 312 votes in the Nov. 6 election, not enough to avoid a runoff against Wayne Hall, who earned 202 votes. Third-place finisher Georgia Fuller, who collected 171 votes, filed a lawsuit.
The complaint, identifying Bruce as "Michael Bruce," claimed she misled voters by identifying herself as a female and asked a judge to rule the vote results invalid and order another general election.
