Why Is the DNC Actively Ignoring Maine's Marriage Battle? / Queerty:
"Barack Obama's Organizing for America, an organization now under the umbrella of the Democratic National Committee, alerted its Maine membership about today's election … without suggesting they vote 'No On 1.' Or even mention there's a marriage battle going on there. And in a follow-up email, OFA asked supporters to get involved … in New Jersey. You might know OFA under its former name, 'Organizing for Obama.' Sure, OFA is asking members to support Gov. Jon Corzine, who supports gay marriage, for re-election in New Jersey, but they included not one word about what today means for Maine's gays and lesbians. (Meanwhile, nothing about Washington's Ref 71?)"

The DNC has long long ignored LGBT people when we needed them, yet are all too happy to suck us dry when they need us. How hilarious that they hit up Maine TWICE today, shilling for the JERSEY election. I'm sick of the DNC altogether, and would rather give money to a homeless, alcoholic gambling and crack addict than the DNC. At least I'd feel better about the way the money was spent.

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?
