by Jeremy Hooper

6A00D8341C503453Ef013483A2271A970CBright spot from last night: The National Organization For Marriage's most prominently backed candidate for California state Assembly, Prop 8 general counsel Andy Pugno, was defeated by his pro-LGBT Democratic opponent, Richard Pan:

It's but a scintilla of consolation for the massive, soul-numbing damage that Pugno and the Prop 8 coalition did to civil rights just two years ago. But still: NOM blew some cash and a vociferous voice of civil discrimination was kept out of a state chamber. If a slot machine victory, this may not be a win that'd turn any fellow casino goer's head in envy. But it is a net gain for the pro-equality player.
