Woman who identifies as a mermaid running for US Senate to replace Susan Collins

A Maine woman who identifies as a “queer feminist mermaid” is running for office in an attempt to unseat Republican Senator Susan Collins,

The first in the state to run as a Democrat for the 2020 race, Bre Kidman was reportedly inspired by the confirmation of Brett Kavanaugh, something she wasn’t too happy with.

According to Fox News, Collins took a temporary hit in the polls after backing Kavanaugh, though her approval ratings have since bounced back, with over half of Maine residents supporting her.

At only 31 years of age, Kidman is a lawyer who doesn’t identify as a woman, using pronouns such as “they” and “their.”

“Like all other politicians, whether or not they want to admit it, I’m a human being who has grown and changed over the years,” she said. “I am funny. I’m weird. I’m serious. I’m happy. I’m sad. I’m a lot of different things.”

The heavy-set lawyer posed nearly-nude in an inflatable container earlier this year, with the image posted on a flyer for her performance art show.

Kidman’s social media presence is rather disjointed, and some feel that openly describing one’s self as a “criminal defense attorney by day & radical fat queer/performance artist/model/musician/activist most other times,” might do more harm than good.

The political hopeful, however, claims that being a “mermaid” is “an artistic identity, not a serious identity.”

“I’m a playful person,” she said. “I’m not going to pretend I’m all serious all the time, because I’m not. I’m mermaid-esque in nature.”
