Gay aide of Romney forced out of campaign and other stories
A few different stories in the news. In one case, the foreign policy adviser of Republican (probable) presidential nominee, Mitt Romney, resigned. Indeed, this was celebrated by many in the far religious rightwing who don't want any openly gay individuals in the Republican party. Maybe they thought this Richard Grinnell would campaign against bills in Uganda, for example, that would execute gay men. They hate the idea of any gay man or woman not villified and despised in the Republican party.
The wife of the legislator who wrote the anti-same sex marriage state constitutional amendment for North Carolina, stated that he wrote it the bill "was because the Caucasian race is diminishing and we need to uh, reproduce." Not that shocking, the religious rightwing had opposed interracial marriages before they opposed marriage equality. Many of them still do.
Finally, a student at at UCSD, in San Diego, was imprisoned and forgotten for 5 days by the DEA. He was supposed to be released right away, after being swept up in a raid on April 20th. They literally forgot he was in a cell, until April 25th. All this for smoking marijuana. See, folks, the number one reason not to smoke marijuana is not because of its' minor negative health effects, but idiots in the anti-drug business enforcing these laws.
