Confession: Buono was the only Democrat I voted for today.

We're through the looking glass here in CUmberland County. The county committee has been taken over by raging homophobes and nominated an Evangelical preacher for the Freeholder board. We also had an allegedly Democratic State Senator (Jeff van Drew) send out a mailing last week proudly announcing that he had been endorsed by the National Organization for Marriage!

Meanwhile, the Republican slate in our county ENDORSED gay marriage.

As a result, I voted Democratic at the top of the ticket, but decided to vote for the people who weren't trying to take away my civil rights downticket.

I kept very quiet about all this here on DU while the election was underway, but now there's no need to hide it any longer.

Now I start the hard work of taking back our local party from these people.

1. Understandable.

 

Sounds like a pretty wacky county, though.

Unless the GOPers were relatively progressive on economic issues I probably would have just skipped those races.
