FOF--BREAKING: House of Representative approves ‘Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell’ repeal

BREAKING: House of Representative approves ‘Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell’ repeal « Feast of Fun:
"The House of Representatives has passed an amendment to the Defense Department Authorization 234 to 194 that repeals the US Law that enacted the “Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell” Policy in 1993. Ron Paul joined three other Republicans–Ros-Lehtinen, Djou, and Cao–in voting for the amendment. The 194 that voted against, however, included 26 Democrats, and believe me, I’ll help you memorize all of their names and districts soon enough–and if they have any primary opponents yet, I’ll tell you where to send your money.

Earlier today the Senate Armed Services Committee approved the Senate’s version of the amendment which will now go before the whole body. Here is the breakdown of that vote:

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?
