Article about GLP'er: "A right-wing agitator who attended Jan. 6 riot is running for the Mass. House, testing state GOP’s appetite for
Sorry about the paywall -- it's clear the establishment here in Massachusetts DEFINITELY does not want me to win this primary (or the general.)

From the article:

"A little-watched legislative contest on the northeast coast of Massachusetts could be a bellwether for the bitterly divided state GOP, as party leaders consider throwing their support behind Samson Racioppi, a right-wing agitator who led a 2019 “Straight Pride Parade” in Boston and organized buses to Washington, D.C., for the protest that became the Jan. 6 insurrection."

This 'debate' was a lot of fun. The article is definitely worth a read.

"Candidates spar at forum"

Racioppi, 49, is a U.S. Army veteran who is studying to be an attorney and said he was running to "shake up the status quo on Beacon Hill."

"There are two parties in Massachusetts, it's not Democrat versus Republican. It is establishment versus everyone else. I propose to you that I am the candidate for everybody else," he said.
__________
Fitzwater asked Racioppi if he thinks that former President Donald Trump was cheated out of the 2020 election.
Racioppi responded by saying the issue isn't relevant to Massachusetts politics, but added election integrity is something that needs to be looked into.

"If our elections are no longer valid, then neither are our system of laws and government," he said.

Each of the candidates was given a chance to ask someone else on the stage a direct question.

Fitzwater asked Racioppi if he thinks that former President Donald Trump was cheated out of the 2020 election.
Racioppi responded by saying the issue isn't relevant to Massachusetts politics, but added election integrity is something that needs to be looked into.

"If our elections are no longer valid, then neither are our system of laws and government," he said.

Lane asked Shand who among the other candidates she would vote for other than herself.

Shand told him it would probably be Fitzwater, who she said has shown exceptional knowledge about ecosystems. She also added that Lane has shown a deep understanding of the district but she isn't quite sure if she and Racioppi could, "ever agree on anything."

"I agree with that," Racioppi answered to boisterous laughter.

Racioppi, in turn, asked Shand what a woman is and she answered simply, "a woman is a person who says she is a woman."

The article misses my entire question that was posed to Shande.

I didn't just come out and be like 'what is a woman?'

She is President of the Massachusetts Women's Political Caucus, and has she/her pronouns on her linkedin page.

So I asked the question like this:

"As President of the Massachusetts WOMEN'S (emphasis on women's) Political Caucus, there is no doubt that you have an opinion on this subject. The question I'm about to pose to you is the subject of a documentary, and has been asked of the most recent Supreme Court Justice Kentanji Brown Jackson:

What is a woman?"

She sighed, leaned forward, and said "A woman is a person who says she is one."

Incredible, isn't it?

WGBH is contacting me for an interview momentarily. No doubt it'll be another hit piece. I'll keep everyone updated
