Anti-gay group humiliates itself with NY primary loss

The National Organization for Marriage interjected itself in a recent primary for New York Congressional seat by endorsing Assemblywoman Claudia Tenney in her race to unseat incumbent Richard Hanna.

The organization bragged about sending "tens of thousands direct mailers" to people in Hanna's district:

How did work out for NOM and Tenney? According to the Post-Standard:

U.S. Rep. Richard Hanna managed to hold off a Republican primary challenge from the right Tuesday, defeating Tea Party favorite Claudia Tenney in the 22nd Congressional District. With no Democrat on the ballot in November, the win assures Hanna of returning to Congress for a third term. Hanna defeated Tenney 53 percent (15,135) to 47 percent (13,503) in the district that covers eight counties to the north, east and south of Syracuse, according to unofficial election returns with 100 percent of the vote counted. 

Way to go, NOM. You're batting a thousand . . . strikes.

Hey Ed,
The LDS-church owned Deseret News published an opinion piece today from Janet Boynes. It is so wrong it is sickening. I hope you can help expose this deceptive article and new low for the Deseret News.
