Nation’s first transgender mayor auctions off shoes to get cash for his city

SILVERTON, Ore. — The nation’s first openly transgender mayor is now opening his closet doors to get cash for his city.

KGW-TV reports that Silverton mayor Stu Rasmussen said he’s hoping someone will pay a pretty penny for what he calls “a little bit of authentic American history.”

Rasmussen has hundreds of pairs in every style and color, and hopes that by selling them, he can raise money to help support local non-profits and public amenities.

The prices range from hundreds to thousands of dollars; his snakeskin and floral print pair, for example, was going for $10,000 on eBay.
