Who is Carly Fiorina?

PALO ALTO, CALIFORNIA (The Nil Admirari) - Earlier this week, Carly Fiorina announced she was running for president as a Republican. Many Americans are wondering who Carly Fiorina is, and we have done some investigating to help you be an informed voter.

Carly Fiorina is a lesbian and LGBT activist who lives in Palo Alto, California with her wife Lassie Burns. Fiorina was the successful CEO of Hewlett-Packard Co. from 1999-2005 where she doubled profits, hired 30,000 new employees in an unprecedented expansion of the company, and retired to focus on Constitutional law despite the pleas of her board to remain at the company.

Fiorina is considered one of the best legal minds in the country when it comes to understanding the Equal Protection Clause of the U.S. Constitution, and she has argued in favor of gay marriage in front of various state and federal courts. In 2010, she took a break from being a lawyer to run for U.S. Senate against Democratic incumbent Barbara Boxer and won.

Senator Fiorina (R-CA) has decided not to run for reelection in 2016 so she can concentrate on her campaign to be the Republican nominee for President of the United States. She is currently the only Republican presidential candidate who supports gay marriage, but her undeniable success in the business world may outweigh that handicap in the Republican primary.
