WASHINGTON - Gay marriage advocates fighting tightly contested ballot initiatives in four states are getting a lift from actor Brad Pitt, who is donating $100,000 to the Human Rights Campaign's National Marriage Fund and calling on others to match his efforts. "It's unbelievable to me that people's lives and relationships are literally being voted on in a matter of days," Pitt wrote in an email going out Wednesday to supporters of the gay rights group. "In Maine, Maryland, Minnesota and Washington, voters will go to the polls to decide if gay and lesbian couples - our friends and neighbors - are worthy of the same protections as everyone else.

Martin O'Malley said at a news conference. “We've got the blizzard on one side. We've got the waves on the Atlantic, we've got the tidals and the flooding.” After making landfall near southern New Jersey with hurricane-force winds, Sandy was parked over Maryland, whipping the state with wind, rain and snow.

You might just be able to make a federal case out of an employer asking to snoop around your social networking account if a new bill wends its way into becoming law. The Social Networking Online Protection Act, or SNOPA, was introduced late last week by Rep. Eliot Engel (D-N.Y.) and Rep. Jan Schakowsky (D-Ill.). If passed, SNOPA would "prohibit current and potential employers for requiring a username, password or other access to online content," according to a news release on Engel's website.

Maryland Gov. Martin O'Malley said he would halt early voting in his largely Democratic state on Monday but President Obama's reelection campaign says they don't yet assume that Hurricane Sandy will significantly disrupt their voter turnout operations in critical swing states.
