Double your investment in 24 hours

Today we're going to help you double your investment in under 48 hours--your investment in equality!

Protect Maine Equality

Once again, a generous donor and Bilerico reader has offered to match donations to our ActBlue Maine Page up to $1000 to help stop the discriminatory Question One in Maine and protect equality for all families! The deadline is Thursday, October 15 at 11:59pm Eastern! We need your help, though! Our donor will only match if at least 12 people contribute. After all the excitement of National Coming Out Day, let's come out in strong support of Maine and help take us over our $5,000 goal!

Your contribution will put people on the ground telling their stories and making their cases to Mainers directly face-to-face. Donate through our Act Blue Maine page today and your dollars help pay for the facilities, training, materials and media blitzes that will help Mainers defend equality at the ballot box this November.

Last time we had a donor match, we blew the goal out of the water--that's because our Bilerico readers are amazing. Now, a month later, we need to blitz again. The race is very tight in Maine and noone can predict what could happen. Please donate to the Bilerico/No On One Maine Act Blue Page and do what you can to stop the Far Right's march to rip our rights away..

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?

In anti-gay attack, AIM falsely asserts "pedophile" Jennings was "teaching 14-year-old boys" about sexual practices | Media Matters for America

In anti-gay attack, AIM falsely asserts "pedophile" Jennings was "teaching 14-year-old boys" about sexual practices | Media Matters for America:
"In attacking the media for allegedly insufficient coverage of Obama administration official Kevin Jennings, a blogger for Accuracy in Media, which purports to 'set the record straight on important issues that have received slanted coverage' -- and which has a record of antagonism toward gays -- smeared Jennings as a 'pedophile' and falsely claimed that '[v]ideos have surfaced of Jennings teaching 14-year-old boys the dangerous sexual practice of 'fisting,' and discussing with them the particulars of oral sex.' In fact, Jennings did not conduct that seminar and, in fact, reportedly criticized it when he became aware of its content."
AIM is a crock. They're nothing more than Republican mouthpieces.
