Fred Karger is on a roll.
He says last week he was the first presidential candidate to personally file for the New Hampshire primary. Then he learned that his nemeses, the National Organization for Marriage (NOM) and ProtectMarriage.com, lost a federal ruling seeking to keep from the public the names of those who contribute to their anti-same sex marriage initiatives.
Karger, a retired Republican political consultant turned "out" gay activist, became known in Laguna Beach some years ago for trying to salvage the Boom Boom Room, an iconic gay bar where actor Rock Hudson was known to hang his hat.
Then came the 2008 California Supreme Court ruling sanctioning same-sex marriages, and shortly thereafter NOM and ProtectMarriage.com swung into action with a state ballot measure that took away those rights.
There was a brief six-month window of opportunity for California same-sex couples to be legally wed before Proposition 8 was approved during the November presidential election and the hammer came down on couples' wedding plans.
