Maine's upcoming referendum on its recently-passed marriage equality
law has brought sleazy right-wingers out of the woodwork -
specifically, the same folks who engineered California's Prop.8
campaign. Now they're airing false ads
featuring a supposed public school teacher, Charla Bansley, who in fact
is a Christian activist who opposes stem cell research, diversity
training, anti-bullying programs and, needless to say, marriage
equality, whose supporters she has called "forces of evil."

One campaign, go here. The leaves are turning!
