Rats in People’s Park? Oh my!

California gubernatorial candidate Jennifer Ney called this afternoon to warn folks that a swarm of rats “bigger than cats” bit her in broad daylight in Berkeley’s famous People’s Park.

Ney says she took herself to Doctor’s Hospital where medical experts reassured her that she probably won’t suffer any long-term ill health effects. (That doesn’t count the gross-out factor.)

Ney says she informed park owners at UC Berkeley, who promised to hire an exterminator.

A colleague is checking this out.

But in the meantime, Ney’s supporters will be happy to know the rodent nightmare hasn’t dissuaded her, a transgendered individual born as a man but living as woman, from her mission to recall and replace Gov. Jerry Brown, a politician she says has not delivered same-sex marriage rights to the gay, lesbian, bisexual and transgendered community.

She is also working on a campaign to recall Jerry Brown and run for governor herself.

    Yes, out of ALL the things on Jerry’s plate that need doing to improve the lives of 100% of California residents, we should recall him becuase he has not addressed the self-described “dire” need of 2% of the population. Or, in this case, one individual with a rather unique issue.

    Can we say “priorities” boys and girls?

    Finally, a candidate who can deliver Trans-parent government.
