GOOD news all round. Not only has Obama won a second term as President, Wisconsin has elected the first openly homosexual member of the US Senate.
Tammy Baldwin, 50, had been running as a Democrat against Republican challenger Tommy Thompson, 70, who formerly served as governor of the state.
She first held office as a state representative in 1998, and is stated to have kept her sexuality in the shadows for the most part.
However, according to this report:
Much has been made of Baldwin’s win yesterday, which makes her the first lesbian to serve the Senate in Washington. Pro-homosexual groups are applauding her victory as an achievement for the homosexual agenda.
Said Jason Burns, Executive Director of Equality Wisconsin:
Baldwin’s victory ensures the [homosexual] community will have a voice in the Senate.
Baldwin herself made a statement to supporters on this matter following her win.
Now, I am well aware that I will have the honor to be Wisconsin’s first woman US Senator. And I am well aware I will be the first openly gay member of the United States Senate.
More good news: Voters in Maine and Maryland made history in becoming the first two states to approve of gay marriage by popular vote. They are now the seventh and eight states to approve of such unions.
Meanwhile, it is reported here that a rising star in the Republican Party in Delaware, rabid homophobe Eric R Bodenweiser, is facing trial for sexually abusing a boy.
The fanatically anti-gay Christian, a member of the Delaware Family Policy Council, was arrested and charged with 113 counts of sexually abusing a young boy more than 20 years ago.
