North Dakota State Rep. Says He's "Confident" State's Anti-Gay Marriage Laws Will Get Legal Challenge

State Rep. Josh Boschee, a Democrat from Fargo and North Dakota’s first openly gay lawmaker, says he’s “confident” that North Dakota’s anti-gay marriage laws will see a legal challenge soon.

Video: ND Democrats Apologize For Partisanship Over "Milkgate"

In a childish display of partisan petulance, North Dakota Democrats staged a publicity stunt in the state house earlier this week bringing to the floor a bill (HB1421) to fund an extra carton of milk for underprivileged North Dakota school kids (they already get two) with a state appropriation. When Republicans voted the bill down,

North Dakota Democrats Introduce Raft Of Ethics Reforms Both Good And Bad

Last year the Fargo Forum took a bribe from the George Soros-funded Center for Public Integrity to help produce a study claiming North Dakota was one of the states in the nation most at-risk for corruption.
