Gill 2010: David Gill for Congress

Gill 2010: David Gill for Congress:
"Welcome to Gill 2010! Illinois’ 15th Congressional District is wide-ranging, both geographically and politically. But in my travels across the district, I hear the same message over and over again: a hunger for a different type of politics, and for a different type of politician. Citizens everywhere have had their fill of career politicians.

Join the campaign as we seek to take back this seat for the well-being of ordinary citizens, to return common sense to Washington, D.C., and to eliminate the waste of our hard-earned resources. As an ordinary citizen, I cannot succeed without your assistance. My Congressional campaigns are supported almost exclusively by the contributions of individual citizens. Please contact us at any time to volunteer or to make a financial contribution; your assistance will go far toward putting this U.S. House seat back into the hands of the people!"

I'm interested in getting to know more about this guy--an LGBT friendly guy who could unseat my HOMOPHOBIC representative Tim Johnson. Anyone else know anything more about this guy?

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."


-HEY #p2! (Progressives).

We can't do this alone.

Lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender Americans have been fighting for over half a Century to have basic Civil Rights. We have so much to do, and we are such a small group. Without an army of Progressive allies, we can't win. Our rights as American citizens are constantly being compromised, despite life-time service to our nation as good, contributing citizens. We can't wait any longer. We need our Progressive allies to step up and go to bat for us TODAY.

We must demand Progressives have got to make LGBT rights a top priority in 2010, or we will keep being put on the back-burner.

There will ALWAYS be something more important than LGBT equality affecting America--issues like Health Care Reform and the Economy effect LGBT people too! However, when we are discriminated against under the law every single day, we can't give our all to fixing these problems. We are long overdue to be counted as equal citizens. That&#…
