Prop 8

Since I think gay marriage is better for gays both as a stabilizing force, for the betterment of all, and as a personal desire; I think folk should do what they can to support this cause. Also I would urge those who believe to make an effort to donate. State law in California requires each donation to be name labeled, saved and recorded, if nothing else and the proposition goes forward, you will and can be known to have made your wishes heard and attach a name to to that desire. In a democracy and a Republic, this is the way and the time to be counted.

Jimbo found this in the interwebs. I think it's hilarious and wonder if there is a larger series of these. Like bogs, frogs, etc. That would be cool to see. Can you imagine the instruction sheet for this pattern?

Context, I've been thinking about learning to knit...

Palm Beach needs Help!

Wow first Mark Foley tries to bang senate pages while txting like a 16 year old, now his democratic successor has his own sex scandal!

Report: Fla. congressman paid $121K to former staffer after affair
From Yahoo!

ABC News says Rep. Tim Mahoney, D-Fla., had an affair with one of his aides and then agreed to a $121,000 settlement when she threatened to file a sexual harassment lawsuit.

The Politico quotes a Mahoney spokesman saying that the payment didn't include any government or campaign funds.

The relationship between Mahoney and Patricia Allen began while he was running against Foley in 2006, according to the network, which says the affair continued after the Democrat took office and hired Allen to work in his district office.

Mahoney replaced Rep. Mark Foley after the Palm Beach Republican resigned amid allegations that he had exchanged sexually explicit messages with underage male pages on Capitol Hill.

Allen, 50, broke off the relationship and was fired earlier this year, the network says, citing an audiotape that's posted on its website.

She hired a lawyer and the pair eventually agreed on a settlement. "Mahoney, who is married, also promised [her] a $50,000 a year job for two years at the agency that handles his campaign advertising," the network says, citing anonymous staffers.
