This morning I received this update from Tammye Nash, editor over at the Dallas voice.

Just to update you.
TABC last night released a statement acknowledging that it was TABC agents that arrested Chad Gibson and that he was in their custody when he was injured.
FWPD Chief Jeffrey Halstead said last night that his department's internal affairs division will continue a complete investigation of the incident to determine if any FWPD officers behaved inappropriately. He also pledged to assign a liaison to the LGBT community, but said that it would take awhile because he wants to find someone who will be passionate about the job.

Chris Geidner: In Iowa, judges are ousted.

Via Chris Geidner's Poliglot blog at Metro Weekly:


In Iowa, which declared Iowa's marriage ban unconstitutional under the state's constitution in 2009, the National Organization for Marriage got one of its first electoral victories this year. The judicial retention elections appear to have resulted in the replacement of all three justices up for a vote this year.

Here, as of 3:35 a.m. and with 1767 out of 1774 precincts reporting, are the Iowa Secretary of State's election results:

Supreme Court Justice David L. Baker
Yes 443437 45.75%
No 525865 54.25%

Supreme Court Justice Michael J. Streit
Yes 442459 45.6%
No 527921 54.4%

Supreme Court Chief Justice Marsha Ternus
Yes 437118 44.99%
No 534486 55.01%

The court was unanimous in its 2009 ruling that Iowa's constitution required marriage equality."

Can we trust Rasmussen anymore?
