Did Prop 8 Pass Because of Voter Fraud?

UPDATE: My bad, Joe Jervis covered it yesterday over at Which, by the way, ought to be one of your favorite blogs. If its not... well... I don't know about you.

This piece of news came up pretty recently, and I've been waiting for ANYONE BUT Queerty to run with it... but for some reason Americablog, BoxTurtle, Bilerico have all just sort of... glossed over it. So I'm forced to bring you the Queerty story. My apologies, but this time, they are ON it when noone else is:

Did Prop 8 Pass Because of Voter Fraud? There Might Not Be Another Statistical Explanation For It / Queerty:
"So after pouring over all the exit poll data and conducting an 'exhaustive analysis' on what California voters were telling surveyors about which lever they pulled compared to how they actually voted, the International Humanities Center's Election Defense Alliance has reached this pretty startling conclusion over how Prop 8 passed: voter fraud is at hand. Woah now."

I rarely point y'all to Queerty, but for some reason, I've heard nothing from my usual suspects about this. Even Courage Campaign seems so focused on getting the Federal Prop 8 Federal trial televised that they're glossing over this pretty big freaking news. So check it out, blog it and tweet it--I want us all to make a little noise about this.

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&#…
