|New Hampshire House of Representatives, Hillsborough 31|
On November 27, 2012, Laughton announced that she would not take office, citing three felony convictions from 2008 related to credit card fraud. The next day, she announced that she would indeed keep her seat pending the state Attorney General's Office's investigation as to whether Laughton qualified for office. On November 29, 2012, Laughton once again moved to step down, signing a letter of resignation to the Secretary of State's office live on a public access television program, and hand-delivering it the next day.
Laughton attempted to run in the 2013 special election to replace her, but was disqualified on January 2, 2013 on the basis of a statement from the Attorney General's office that she had not fully discharged her sentence.
Laughton was the first openly transgender woman to win election to a state office in New Hampshire.
Laughton won election in the 2012 election for New Hampshire House of Representatives, Hillsborough 31. Laughton was unopposed in the September 11 primary and won election in the general election which took place on November 6, 2012.
