FOF--Equality can’t wait… Giannoulias' new LGBT website

Equality can’t wait… but the website can.:
"Yesterday I was up in Chicago for the press conference announcing the launch of Alexi Giannoulias’ new LGBT petition website at the Center on Halstead–a petition site that collects your information as it helps you contact your Senators about the repeal of Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell. By the way, both Illinois Senators (Durbin, Burris) are co-sponsors of the bill to repeal Don’t Ask Don’t Tell, so if you live here, there’s not a lot of reason (at least for now) to visit the site of the man looking to take the former Senate seat of Barack Obama. However, if you sign the petition, the campaign will be able to let you know first as the website’s functionality improves, and more campaigns are launched..."

Check out my latest Feast of Fun post to find out what's coming up with Alexi Giannoulias' new LGBT action website.

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?

In anti-gay attack, AIM falsely asserts "pedophile" Jennings was "teaching 14-year-old boys" about sexual practices | Media Matters for America

In anti-gay attack, AIM falsely asserts "pedophile" Jennings was "teaching 14-year-old boys" about sexual practices | Media Matters for America:
"In attacking the media for allegedly insufficient coverage of Obama administration official Kevin Jennings, a blogger for Accuracy in Media, which purports to 'set the record straight on important issues that have received slanted coverage' -- and which has a record of antagonism toward gays -- smeared Jennings as a 'pedophile' and falsely claimed that '[v]ideos have surfaced of Jennings teaching 14-year-old boys the dangerous sexual practice of 'fisting,' and discussing with them the particulars of oral sex.' In fact, Jennings did not conduct that seminar and, in fact, reportedly criticized it when he became aware of its content."
AIM is a crock. They're nothing more than Republican mouthpieces.
