Courts strike down anti-gay maraige in Arkansas and Idaho
Best topic I could find for this.

State Judge Strikes Down AR Marriage Ban

U.S. Magistrate Judge Candy Dale has ruled Idaho’s ban on gay marriage is unconstitutional

Yes, bare links. But I wanted to get this into the record somewhere. Go to the linked pages to read more.

And in related odd news in Pennsylvania politics
Oddity in Pennsylvania House primaries.

quote:
Pennsylvania state Rep. Mike Fleck, a Republican and the state’s first out gay lawmaker, said Tuesday he will run as a Democrat to retain his seat this November after a write-in challenger to his seat in the Republican primary race apparently received more votes.

More at source (happened to pick that source, but there are a lot of others also available).

He lost in the Republican primary to write-in candidate (Huntingdon County Treasurer) Richard Irvin, but won as a write-in candidate vs also write-in candidate Irvin in the Democratic primary (I believe there were no "real" Democratic candidates). So he's going to be a Republican running as a Democrat in the general election (and I got to say, "or something like that".)
