They're expecting to certify R-71 in Washington by tomorrow, despite the suit by gay activists to keep it off the ballot. If they're successful (and if even some of their accusations are accepted by a judge, they should be), then the gays will have won a victory over traditional values in the courts, and people won't be happy at all with democracy being usurped. Forget the fact that, if their accusations are true, a Republican secretary of state ignored the law and allowed illegal signatures to be counted in order to advance his partisan agenda - it's always the gays who are at fault in any of these battles since, obviously, those motivated by their moral values are incapable of running dishonest campaigns.
In Iowa, NOM received a letter from the Iowa Ethics and Campaign Disclosure Board because they were promising donors to a campaign on behalf of a conservative state house candidate that their names would be kept secret, even though that's illegal in the state for donations over $750. But you can see why they should be allowed to do it - homophobes have to keep their political activities secret because gays will do awful things to them, like send them sternly-worded postcards.
In Maine, NOM managed to raise several hundred thousand dollars through other private charities to put a question to turn back same-sex marriage on the ballot while not disclosing their donors names, and the state's Ethics Commission is opening an investigation of their fundraising tactics. Once again, sternly-worded postcards, people. Postcards.
While it's clear that the right will stop at nothing to get their agenda passed, having been reduced to nothing but a racket, I have a feeling that serious journalists will be condemning angry gay activists crossing the line by the end of the year. Because that's the reality of being a maligned minority.
