Helping Iowa become Courageous

October 08, 2010,

By Adam Bink In Iowa, NOM, along with the American Family Association, has funded the “Iowa for Freedom” campaign to oust the 3 Supreme Court justices who ruled in favor of equal rights and are up for a retention vote this November. Polling shows the races are a tossup. All across the country our movement has demonstrated that supporting the freedom to marry for same-sex couples, whether you’re a single legislator or a governor or a justice, will not cost you your seat. NOM will also likely get involved in state legislative races, trying to muster supporters for a constitutional amendment.

NOM Scrubbing Their Site

October 07, 2010,

The National Organization for Marriage suddenly took down the press release we cited yesterday where we called on NOM to explain why its tax-exempt charitable organization, the Ruth Institute – a project of NOM’s Marriage Education Fund – is violating federal laws by intervening on behalf of a candidate for elected office. The NOM release posted on its web site was titled “National Organization for Marriage and Ruth Institute Join Bus Tour Supporting Carly Fiorina in California.” The release states that “Brian Brown, president of NOM, and Jennifer Roback Morse, president of The Ruth Institute, a project of NOM’s Marriage Education Fund, will both be supporting the bus tour as it makes its way around California.”

My last day with P8TT: Reflections on the NOM tour, and what Dave Matthews might have to say about i

October 07, 2010,

By Adam Bink As NOM’s California bus tour comes to a close, so must my time here managing P8TT/NTT (again), as I have to focus on some other election-related projects. So tomorrow will be my last day. Of course I’ll be around in the comments and occasionally do a piece, but the reins will be turned back over to Eden and the rest of the P8TT front-page crew. In the future, you can continue to always find me at my home blog, OpenLeft.com. And I’ll be guesting through Election Day at Crooks and Liars, a popular vlog (video blog), with a special focus on the 2010 elections and progressive, pro-equality candidates. Lastly, if you really, really like me, my Tweets can be fun and useful.

Final day of the NOM California tour: If at first you don’t succeed, try again 37 times and you migh

October 07, 2010,

Hey, it took 10 days and nearly 40 stops, but Vota Tus Valores actually managed to stumble upon a small crowd of Latino voters (although it’s hard to not do on Olvera Street, and it’s up in the air as to how many are actually of voting age), and Alfonso managed to bring himself to talk to us. Will miracles never cease? -Adam By Arisha Michelle Hatch Stop #38: Los Angeles It was raining when we arrived at the Panorama City Mall and the Vota Bus was nowhere to be found.

Interview: Same Sex Sunday with Arisha, Rick Jacobs and myself about the NOM Tour Tracker

October 07, 2010,

By Adam Bink We’ve been remiss about mentioning this here at P8TT, but today’s a good a day as any. Late last month I sat down (virtually speaking) along with Arisha and Rick for an interview on a great new podcast called Same Sex Sunday, which is run by Phil Reese and Joe Mirabella, two independent LGBT activists and colleagues. Phil and Joe wanted to talk about the NOM summer tour, what came out of it, how the Prop 8 Trial Tracker came about and where it’s going, and what the future holds for groups like NOM.
