Ashlee Marie Preston, who once made headlines for calling Caitlyn Jenner “a fraud,” is set to run for office. News reports have her aiming tat California District 54’s state assembly seat. A special election is scheduled for that seat since Sebasitan Ridley-Thomas resigned. “As someone directly impacted by the issues that often diminish the quality of life, I have an acute understanding of which policies must be put into play in order to move progress forward for the constituents of the 54th district and beyond. I believe in prioritizing people over politics,” wrote Preston n a press release. “We are more than poll percentage points; we are real people with real stories. I fully intend to continue honoring those experiences, and advocating for those who don’t have a seat at the table.” Last August, Preston drew attention when she confronted Jenner at a Trans Chorus of Los Angeles event. She called out Jenner’s support of Donald Trump and called Jenner “a fking fraud. It’s really fked up that you continue to support somebody… that’s erasing our fking community. And you support it!”
