FOF--GetEqual White House Six stand before a judge, new trial for Choi, Pietrangelo

Check out my latest From the Feast of Fun blog:

GetEqual White House Six stand before a judge, new trial for Choi, Pietrangelo:
"After chaining themselves to the White House fence on Tuesday morning to protest slow movement on “Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell,” the GetEqual White House Six appeared in court for their hearings this morning. Veterans Autumn Sandeen, Larry Whitt, Mara Boyd, and Evelyn Thomas all agreed to “post and forfeit” to avoid pleading guilty and were released after paying a $100 fee each.

Lt. Dan Choi and Cpt. Jim Pietrangel–already awaiting a trial for their “not-guilty” plea stemming from the mid-March White House action where they chained themselves to the White House fence the first time–have had their trials for both counts now rescheduled for July 14..."

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?
