  •  In WA NOM did target and defeat a state senator (5+ / 0-)

    who provided the 25th and crucial vote to get marriage equality passed in the Senate.  That was Mary Margaret Haugen from Island County.  She is a conservadem who has not been very popular with us liberals in Seattle because of her opposition to Transit, raising taxes and other things we have wanted to do.  But when push came to shove she searched her soul and came up with the final vote that passed Marriage Equality in the Senate.  NOM put close to a million dollars into the campaign against her and they defeated her.  She was replaced by a Tea Party nutbag. Very sad.  Rumors that I heard were that most of the money NOM had here came  from the Knights of Columbus, but I assume they were just a pass thru for the real source of the money.

    Suppose you were an idiot. And suppose you were a Republican. But I repeat myself. Harry Truman
