And You Thought You'd Changed A Lot

In the eighties and early nineties, Ken Price was a married Mormon father of six, a member of the city council in the conservative Salt Lake suburb of Sandy, Utah. Well, he's still in politics, currently running for the Utah Senate.

Only now he's named Jennifer Lee Jackson, and he's a she:

Many people may know Ken Prince as a three-term member of the Sandy City Council in the 1980s and 1990s. Or they know his name as a Sandy mayoral candidate, where in 1993 he lost to Mayor Tom Dolan by only 207 votes. But the father of six children who married twice, served an LDS mission and later served in the LDS church leadership, struggled all his life with internal feelings that conflicted with his outward body appearance. On the inside, he felt he was a woman.

You've come a long way, baby.

Oh my heck...this will provide fodder for plenty of badmouthing by the Relief Society. ;)
