Transgender Police Officer Running for Oklahoma House Seat: VIDEO


Transgender Oklahoma City police officer Paula Sophia is making history in the Sooner state, KFOR reports:

Paula Sophia is running for house district 88 after spending twenty-two years on the Oklahoma city police force. It’s the same area she patrolled as an officer until her resignation on Monday. Now she says its time to serve in a different way.

“I was a community oriented police officer, now I’m going to be a community oriented legislature,” says Sophia.

Sophia says she wants to focus on a number of issues stating, “I have a deep concern about peace and justice, about respecting the dignity of every human being and I still deeply believe in those issues.”

One issue she has no concern about is being the second transgender woman to run for a house seat. The first was her campaign manager.

  1. Unless she's as large as a building, I believe she said "legislator" not "legislature" as you transcribed it.

  3. Scotto, most "transwomen" are in fact as large as a building.

  4. Lol! Maybe since this is a former cop, this will be the rare transgender who doesn't have a criminal background.

    The first transgender elected to a state legislature was exposed as a criminal and a liar. "She" was elected in NH and just after her election, it came out that she had a criminal record which she had not disclosed.

    Reflecting the typical amorality of trans activists, she refused to resign and feigned surprise that voters would have wanted to know that a person running to be a lawmaker was actually a law breaker. Well eventually, the NH House leadership forced to resign. Another great moment in trans history! No doubt she feels oppressed by the "cis scum" who made her go.

  7. Most transphobic comments are made by the same pathetic troll using various usernames or stealing the usernames of others. As is the case about.

    Paula Sophia has been and will always be a better human being than our resident troll, Rick. And that really irks him. He's a sad clown. A sad, flaccid, boozy clown.
