Now if she were a lesbian, she'd be perfect

In Massachusetts, a young law student is collecting signatures to run for the state Senate. Samiyah Diaz, 28, has nearly all her progressive credentials in order: she’s a daughter of immigrants, part black and part Hispanic, a single mother, and a Muslim.

The only problem is she’s also a Republican.

Diaz is running against firmly-entrenched Senator Dianne Wilkerson, a liberal Democrat (even by Massachusetts’ standards) and is making Wilkerson’s brushes with the law over money a major issue. Wilkerson has run afoul of the tax laws on numerous occasions, including a conviction for failing to file that left her under house arrest for a significant portion of one of her terms of office.

Wilkerson is pretty much guaranteed re-election yet again (her district is so liberal, they almost qualify as legally insane), but it should be tremendously entertaining to watch the state Democrats squirm under Diaz’ challenge.
