Speaking of National Organization For Marriage losses...

by Jeremy Hooper

Keeping with the theme of NOM's paper tiger role in American congressional races: Earlier this month, the House that Bias Built funneled a little over 3.5k's to conservative Republican Craig Huey, in hopes that he'd snatch up the House seat left vacant by Democrat Jane Harman's resignation:

The outcome: Democrat Janice Hahn won the July 12th special election, retaining the seat for the Democrats. Hahn has said she "will do everything [she] can to repeal the discriminatory DOMA."

So again: Thanks, NOM!

*MORE: In fact, the only real wins on this entire list are Rep. Charles Djou and Sen. Scott Brown:

Djou and Brown both voted for DADT repeal. Djou then lost his Nov. 2010 election (he was initially elected in a May 2010 special).

We'll have to wait and see if Brown evolves on DOMA, considering the Senator represents a state where equal marriage's benign status has more than belied NOM's fear points.
