Anita Mann for the Win!

Post by dbackjon »

https://www.lgbtqnation.com/2020/09/dra ... landslide/

Delaware progressive Democrat Eric Morrison has soundly defeated incumbent State Rep. Earl Jaques (D) in the state’s primary election, garnering 61% of the vote.

Morrison is also a drag queen who performs under the name “Anita Mann.” Jacques, the incumbent, was a staunch opponent of LGBTQ rights.


Jacques had already lost one skirmish with Morrison when he launched an attack against the progressive for holding a drag show as a campaign fundraiser. When his bigoted remarks failed to land, he backtracked and apologized.

“That is so far off-base for our district, it’s unbelievable,” Jaques originally told The News Journal in November 2019. “You wonder what the point is. You can have fundraisers, I don’t care about that. But dressing in drag? Really?”

“I’m not sure he represents the people who attend those places of religion. If he’s actually having a fundraiser in drag, I don’t think those churches would endorse that… I’m just saying it’s a little different, that’s for sure.”

Woah, I've met Anita two or three times at a drag show before. She's part of the Imperial Court system and was at the DC coronation a few years ago. Nice job Eric...glad progressives are making in-roads throughout the Democratic party.

Nothin' new...I've posted about attending drag shows before. I have a close friend (Muffy Blake Stephyns, Empress IV) who my friends and I have supported for years. It's a helluva fun time, the people you meet are awesome, and everything is for charity.

I understand that Anita Mann will be running against Amanda Huggenkiss in the general election.

Yes - he's a drag queen, not transgender.


BTW - dang Delaware has a lot of house districts. If Arizona had the same population ratio (32K per district), Arizona would have 333 districts instead of 30

"Yes, well, Towson actually."

Its hard to believe they aren't all in Wilmington either.
