North Carolina voters have overwhelmingly approved adding Amendment One to the state constitution. Amendment One bans same-sex marriage. The vote as of this evening (May 8) is about 60% in favor of the amendment.
The Raleigh, NC News and Observer is leading with the picture above, which shows why this issue poses a fascinating problem for liberal Democrats. It's difficult to claim that all those in favor of Amendment One are racist throwbacks to the KKK.
