If you are in the vicinity of Maryland you probably know that Democratic Del. Sam Arora is being ripped to shreds by his constituents, the GLBT community, and liberals around the world.
He's being attacked on his Facebook page and in dozens of other venues. Here are just a couple of the negative, Facebook rants against the Delegate from Montgomery County. There are hundreds of these, if not a few thousand.
Background on this story is so voluminous, that I won't even summarize—Wikipedia alone has more written about Sam Arora's backtracking on gay marriage in Maryland than it has on any other aspect of the Delegate's entire life. Link.
Matt Arnstine is a junior government and politics major at University of Maryland and he has published a nice, current opinion piece on the news site, DiamondBackOnline.Com - Link.
If there is a major media outlet in the United States that hasn't touched on the Sad Sam Arora story, I'm not aware of it.
BTW, when I post a contest on this blog I usually offer a prize to the winner. The prize for winning this crossword is getting the clown, named Sam Arora, out of office.
[UPDATE] Via NPR:
The Maryland Legislature has passed a law to allow gay marriage by a small, but expected margin.
The state Senate voted 25-22 on Thursday to legalize gay marriage, less than a week after the House of Delegates barely passed the measure.
Maryland will become the eighth state to allow gay marriage when Gov. Martin O'Malley, who sponsored the bill, signs the legislation.
Opponents vow to bring the measure to voters with a referendum. Now that the bill has passed the Senate, organizers can begin collecting the more than 55,000 signatures needed to put it on the ballot.
