NY's Village Voice Asks if Weprin is "First Political Victim of SSM Backlash"

 

The short answer is yes:

Politicians who are on the fence about coming out for [same-sex marriage] will undoubtedly take note of NOM's success with a seat which should have been a cakewalk for the Democrats.

Wiser heads than ours can probably argue that there were larger forces at play than simply [same-sex marriage].

Still, judging from the stream in our (extremely) little slice of the twitterverse, NY-9 was all about gay marriage, Weprin's vote, and NOM's vow to take him on.

And unquestionably, today the [same-sex marriage] foes won -- both in NY-9 and in North Carolina.
