The Sheriff fired her because she was gay. So she ran against him and won!

Charmaine McGuffey is going to be the new sheriff for Hamilton County, Ohio.

She defeated Bruce Hoffbauer, her Republican opponent, in the general election with 52% of the vote.

McGuffey made headlines when she announced her decision to run for sheriff. She was challenging her former boss, Jim Neil, in the Democratic primary. Neil had fired her, McGuffey alleged, because she’s an out lesbian.

McGuffey easily defeated him with approximately 70% of the vote, getting sweet revenge.

Both McGuffey and Hoffbauer were lifelong experienced law enforcement candidates. McGuffey promised “responsibility” and “accountability” with people of color if she won the election. Hoffbauer claimed he would have “removed” himself “and been the law enforcement executive” if he saw people kneeling during protests or events.

McGuffey also made it a point to be proud of her identity during the campaign, even touching on it in political ads.
