Instead of appearing live on CNN, Largo city manager Steve Stanton fired after revealing his sex change plans has taped a segment for the network.A spokeswoman for a nonprofit group representing him says the segment featuring former Steve Stanton and his lawyer is scheduled to air at 9 tonight on “Larry King Live.” But it’s not yet clear why Stanton was bumped off last night’s show.
Stanton was to discuss if he planned to sue the suburban city to get his job back. He initially said taking Largo to court would be like “suing my mother.” But since the City Commission’s two votes to fire him, Stanton has been recruited to join a national ight for transsexual employment rights. Stanton and his attorney declined to comment on their legal plans before the CNN broadcast aired. The city is expecting a lawsuit.
Stanton is married and has a teenage son. He’s in the process of legally changing his name to Susan.
