Former state lawmaker Terri Proud wants $800,000 from the state for a job she held for a few days last year.

Proud submitted the claim — a precursor to a formal lawsuit — seeking damages related to her termination last year from a relatively low-level job at the state’s Department of Veterans Services.

Her firing, which occurred in April, made national headlines when she said in an Arizona Daily Star news story that menstrual cycles might be too problematic for women to serve in combat.

Those statements cost her the job as an administrative assistant with the Department of Veterans Services. The position paid $40,000 a year.
