Maine, Maryland, Minnesota, and Washington Defend Marriage Equality

Election night was a big night for LGBTQ rights. Four states, Maine, Michigan, Minnesota, and Washington had decisions about gay marriage on the ballots. And it looks like voters sent a clear message to the country, The U.S. is past ready for marriage equality!

Minnesota has voted down Amendment 1, a constitutional amendment that would have defined marriage as being a union solely between a man and a woman. The state became the first in the country to vote against such an amendment on the ballot when results were announced early Wednesday.

In Washington, the state is all but certain to legalize same-sex marriage with the passing of Referendum 74, though due to the state’s mail-in voting system, a final tally may not come for another day or two. On Election Day Tuesday, voters in Maineand Maryland chose to legalize gay marriage. This marks the first time marriage equality has been legalized via the ballot.

Romney to Immigrant Community: Obama Broke Immigration Reform Promise

Today in a Wisconsin town hall meeting Romney said in reference to immigration reform, “Let the immigrant community not forget that while [Obama] uses this as a political weapon, he has not taken responsibility for fixing the problems we have.” This sounds strange coming from a guy who wants immigrants to “self-deport” and considers Arizona’s SB 1070 a model for the nation.

MILWAUKEE, Wis. – Mitt Romney today flatly accused President Obama of reneging on his campaign promise to enact sweeping immigration reform, despite enjoying a Democrat-controlled Congress for his first two years in office.

“This has always been a priority for the president he chooses to do nothing about,” Romney said. “Let the immigrant community not forget that while he uses this as a political weapon, he has not taken responsibility for fixing the problems we have.”

The GOP frontrunner’s comments came at a town hall meeting at the Moore Oil Company here after an audience member, noting that his girlfriend would have to return to Spain soon when her visa runs out, asked about immigration reform.

“My own view is our immigration policies are upside down,” he continued. “We make it very hard for people who have skills that we need — education and English-speaking and workplace skills — make it very hard for those people to come here and to stay here. On the other hand, those that don’t have any of those things are often times able to come either across the border or over-stay their visas and remain in this country indefinitely. So we’ve got it backwards.”

Pete Wilson is Back to Hate on Immigrants. Endorses Mitt Romney. 

Former California Governor Pete Wilson (who oversaw the passage of that state’s anti-immigrant law, Proposition 187) endorsed Mitt Romney for president today and was named his campaign’s honorary California chair.

Adding Wilson to the fold, in addition to SB 1070 author Kris Kobach as an unpaid advisor, means Romney’s anti-immigrant aligns with the most right-wing politicians in the country’s recent history.
