A lesbian sheriff who was allegedly fired because of her sexuality is running to replace her boss and become the first female LGBT+ sheriff in her state. Charmaine McGuffey is currently suing Hamilton county sheriff Jim Neil, claiming he fired her from her position as major of the Hamilton county jail and court services because she is a woman and a lesbian. Neil denies this, claiming that she was fired because she created a hostile work environment and bullied colleagues, but McGuffey maintains it was because she spoke out against the toxic working culture. She’s now challenging him outside the courts, too, as she runs against him in the Democratic primary for sheriff.
