  1. Key word being “Openly”.

    There is still the open question of when it would be arrested. [Since it’s not really a female and it abandoned being male than ‘it’ is best] Technically it is still an active member of the armed forces, not having been discharged, and it is illegal for military personnel to be a candidate.

    From DoD directives.

    A regular member, or a retired regular or Reserve Component member on
    active duty under a call or order to active duty for more than 270 days many[sic]
    not be a nominee or candidate for a covered civil office unless the Secretary
    concerned grants permission. The Secretary concerned may not delegate the
    authority to grant or deny this permission.

  2. Let us count the, errr, counts.

    Prohibited political activities (Section 4.1.2). A member of the Armed Forces on
    active duty shall not:

    a)Participate in partisan political fundraising activities, rallies, conventions,
    management of campaigns, or debates. The prohibition is broad and does not
    depend on whether a member is in uniform or even whether an inference of
    official endorsement can be drawn;
    b)Use official authority or influence to interfere with an election, affect the
    course or outcome of an election, solicit votes for a particular candidate or
    issue, or require or solicit political contributions from others;
    c)Publish partisan political articles or letters that solicit votes for or against a
    partisan political party, candidate, or cause. Letters to the editor may be
    allowed as noted above;
    d)Participate in any radio, television, or other program or group discussion as an
    advocate for or against a partisan political party, candidate, or cause;
    e)Serve in official capacity/sponsor a partisan political club;
    f)Conduct a political opinion survey or distribute political literature;
    g)Speak before a partisan political gathering;
    h)Work for a partisan political committee or candidate during a campaign, on
    election day or while closing out a campaign;
    i)Engage in fundraising activity for any political candidate or cause in Federal
    offices, facilities, or on military reservations;
    j)March or ride in partisan parades;
