|| By FITSNEWS || Openly bisexual small businesswoman Ginny Deerin – who ran unsuccessfully for S.C. Secretary of State last fall – announced her candidacy for mayor of Charleston, S.C. this week.

“I’ve run a multi-million dollar non-profit organization and been a small business owner,” Deerin said in kicking off her campaign.  “I worked with Mayor Joe Riley, led community efforts in Charleston, and I’m a mother and grandmother,” Deerin said. “All of this has prepared me to take the reins at this pivotal point in Charleston’s history and to help make Charleston an even greater city.”

Deerin ran statewide last year as a Democrat, although her campaign received the backing of several conservative organizations – including the S.C. Club for Growth.  She was also backed by former S.C. first lady Jenny Sanford.  Unfortunately for her, this crossover support failed to extend from the political bubble into the voting public – and she was handily defeated by “Republican” incumbent Mark Hammond.

Also seeking this post?  S.C. Rep. Leon Stavrinakis – a fifth-term state lawmaker who brands himself as a “centrist.”  Wealthy Charleston businessmen John Tecklenburg is also running – as are city councilman William Dudley Gregorie and former city councilman Paul Tinkler.

Riley has served as Charleston’s mayor since December 1975.  The 72-year-old politician announced last year he would step down at the end of this – his tenth term.

Good for her. Now, I don’t see what someone’s sexuality or religious affiliation would have to do with their ability to be a mayor, I’d just hope that that doesn’t get in the way if she’s actually a good candidate or not. But what am I saying! This is South Carolina, people don’t take stock in what a candidate will actually do! They look at the tiny things, a modicum of the issue, and throw that out of proportion.

No, but she has experience riding bareback using “reins”, which is why she’s ready to take the reins of Charleston city government.

Bless her heart. I wish I could come out, but the Republican in me just can’t allow it. I better get a more “manly” handle…

I see this race as being between Stavrinakis and Tecklenburg.

This is the long time conservative republican that announced her outrage with Mark Sanford’s during his campaign in the 200 plus candidate primary for the special election to replace Tim Scott in the House after his appointment to the Senate?
What else will she lie about? Probably no worse than the incumbent in a town that usually has a 5% voter turn out, even with street money and chicken dinners cooked in the “Charleston 5” slush fund paid for scab labor built ILA hall on Morrison drive…
