Millionaire Transsexual Bankrolls PAC for Son’s Florida Democrat Campaign

Posted on | July 30, 2014 | 50 Comments

Next time Democrats claim that Republicans are “the party of the rich” or complain about millionaires using PACs to funnel big money into politics, just mention this weird story about the Democrat candidate for Congress in Florida’s 8th District:

A congressional candidate in Florida is getting a boost from a super political action committee with one donor, which happens to be his dad.
But there’s a twist.
Gabriel Rothblatt’s father, Martine, used to be Martin Rothblatt before undergoing gender reassignment surgery. She — Martine — founded Sirius Satellite Radio and a Maryland-based biotech company that paid her $38 million in compensation last year, according to Forbes. . . .
Records show Martine Rothblatt contributed $225,000 to SpacePAC last quarter. Additionally, SpacePAC’s treasurer is a former federal regulatory lawyer and now influential attorney associated with United Therapeutics Corp., Martine Rothblatt’s pharmaceutical company.
Federal election laws prohibit super PACs from coordinating with candidates, but the close familial ties in this case could easily complicate those restrictions — and already may have. . . .
Rothblatt is endorsed by the Teamsters, a powerful labor union, and the National Organization for Women, a feminist group. The district includes Brevard and Indian River counties, and parts of Orange County.

Now, I’m going to get to Martine Rothblatt’s genuinely weird biography in a minute, but first, here’s a report from local newspaper columnist Russ Lemmon about the “infestation” of campaign signs for Gabriel Rothblatt that covered the 8th District:

As I noted last week, Rothblatt sent me an email in May and he said the signs were put out by SpacePAC, a political action committee that is supporting his campaign. He said election laws prohibit him from having contact with SpacePAC.
I said it was a lame excuse, as he surely knows someone who knows someone who could get the word to SpacePAC.
Which inadvertently set the stage for a humorous email from Curtis Carpenter:
“His excuse that it’s a Political Action Committee that is responsible for their placement might almost be believable except for the fact that his parents founded the PAC!”
Yes, it’s true.
SpacePAC was formed by Bina and Martine Rothblatt, according to the website (Some interesting trivia from the website: “The Rothblatts created Sirius XM satellite radio in 1990.”)
During our initial email exchange, Gabriel Rothblatt didn’t say a word about his parents’ involvement in SpacePAC. I told him that was a pretty big omission on his part.
“The May conversation was brief and any number of topics could either be considered an omission, or just not relevant to a brief directed response and reserved for a still anticipated in-person conversation,” he said Thursday via email.
Seriously? I’m thinking he should have given disclosure of the SpacePAC relationship a much higher priority.

First, does anyone believe that Gabriel Rothblatt is not “coordinating” with a PAC whose sole contributor is his . . . er, ex-father?

It appears the SpacePAC exists solely as a single-donor money-funnel with the goal of electing Martine Rothblatt’s son to Congress. There’s your grassroots party of the working-class “little guy,” eh?

Now, let’s examine the bizarre biography of Martine (neé Martin) Rothblatt: It’s wrong to call him/her Gabriel Rothblatt’s “mother,” because it appears that after undergoing sex-change surgery in 1994 at age 40, Martin/Martine remained married to his/her wife, who is the mother of their four children, Eli, Sunee, Gabriel, and Jenesis. So I guess that means Martin/Martine is a translesbian.

In 1995, Martine Rothblatt published The Apartheid of Sex: Manifesto on the Freedom of Gender, about which we read:

Rothblatt makes a case for the adoption of a new sexual model that accommodates every shade of gender identity. She reveals that traditional male and female roles are dictated neither by genetics, genitals, nor reproductive biology, but rather by social attitudes that originated in early patriarchal cultures and that have been institutionalized in modern law, and she calls a new acceptance of human sexuality in all its prismatic variety. . . .
Arguing that “the legal division of people into males and females is as wrong as the legal division of people into black and white race,” Rothblatt, an attorney and transsexual, is a proponent of “transgenderism,” which she characterizes as a grass-roots movement whose guiding principle is “that people should be free to change, either temporarily or permanently, the sex type to which they were assigned since infancy.” Using a provocative reinterpretation of historical and legal issues, feminist thinking, and scientific research to defend her belief in continua of sex, gender, and sexual identity, Rothblatt sometimes seems unclear of her intended audience.

Yeah, whatever. And if you think that is weird, try this:

In 2004, Rothblatt launched the Terasem Movement, a transhumanist school of thought focused on promoting joy, diversity, and the prospect of technological immortality via mind uploading and geoethical nanotechnology. Through a charitable foundation, leaders of this school convene publicly accessible symposia, publish explanatory analyses, conduct demonstration projects, issue grants, and encourage public awareness and adherence to Terasem values and goals..

So here’s your Gabriel Rothblatt campaign slogan:

Elect the Millionaire Weirdo’s Son to Congress!

    Um, have the Radfems been informed of this? Can we expect Ms. Witchwind or whatever her name is to endorse the Republican candidate?

    Nah, she’d just go Green.

    Of course, you could have Democrats like Phyllis Kahn, who’s been in since the 1970’s, and about 10 years ago she got convicted of stealing a Republican’s campaign lit, but because she represents the University, there’s no memory in her electorate.

  • David R. Graham

    I lived in NYC late 60s when/where the feminist movement started. My editor then told me that 90% of the NYT Best Seller audience were Jewish matrons in Westchester County, NY. My observation at the time was that the FLM comprised Jewish women married to the likes of Elliott Spitzer and Roy Cohn.

    And this, folks, is MY freakin’ district. If you check out Gabe Rothblatt’s website, you’ll see that it’s full of Obama talking points, and sweetness and love and happy bunnies and unicorns where it concerns Obama’s policies. Considering his father’s transexualism, it’s no surprise that Gabe has his head firmly up the Preezy’s nether regions. This candidate brings absolutely nothing of value to the citizens of this district, since it is obvious that he cannot think objectively. I’d go so far as to characterize him as a sock puppet, i.e., perfect liberal.

    The incumbent candidate, Republican Bill Posey, has a great voting record, and during town halls, it’s obvious that he thinks similarly to the majority of the citizens in this area; therefore he’s an appropriate representative. He even responds to emails I send complaining about this or that issue with a real and informative answer, not a Debbie Wasserman Schultz-style answer. Faced with giving contemporaneous answers to ad hoc town hall questions, he delivers the goods.

    One of my low-info neighbors has a Rothblatt magnetic sign on the side of her car. Can’t wait to engage her in a friendly discussion.

    If my father turned himself into a crone with an army of flying monkeys the last thing I’d do is run for public office. I’d be too busy looking for a small town where I could hide and start my life over again.

    Be sure to ask your Rothblatt-supporting neighbor about “technological immortality via mind uploading and geoethical nanotechnology. ” I’m sure that’s very popular, right?

    I’m thinking more along the lines of the scene in “Chinatown” where Jack Nicholson confronts Faye Dunaway. Except now it would play like this:

    “She’s my father. He’s my mother. She’s my father. He’s my mother.”

    Forget it, Stacy. It’s Floridatown…..

    Dang, 38 million bones probably bought the senior perv a custom set of delicate parts. He’s still a moral leper, a jacked up degenerate and a lunatic. They don’t have any surgery for that.

    I am amused:

    people should be free to change, either temporarily or permanently, the sex type to which they were assigned since infancy.

    OK, imagine that. Mr Rothblatt (apparently) had his genitals removed, in favor of an open wound he purports to be a vagina. If he should decide that, well, this was only a temporary change, anything that a plastic surgeon could construct for him to replace the apparently healthy genitals he had cut off isn’t going to be anything remotely similar to the real thing.

    It takes a special kind of stupid to be Mr Rothblatt.

    And he’s ugly, too.

    I think we already have.

    Trouble is, it also means that Mrs Rothblatt has changed from being heterosexual into homosexual, but we all know that that’s impossible; homosexuals are born that way, right?

  • Dana

    There were warning signs, of course: any couple who names children either Sunee or Jenesis is already manifesting problems.

    Hahaha…Happy Acres is the name of a trashy bar in town; the kind where they sweep up spines and loose eyeballs at the end of the night.

    Maybe he uploaded his genitals to his iPhone for storage.

  • DeadMessenger

    Oh wait. I take back my response to your previous comment. Perhaps Mr. Rothblatt uploaded his genitals to MRS. Rothblatt’s iPhone.

  • Dana

    Can you do that with iPhone 4, or do you have to wait for a later version?
