"The number of hate crimes prosecutions under the new law, now a year old: zero. I checked with the FBI this week. There are many other "investigations" pending but they understandably cannot give details until the facts are resolved. But I repeat: the Human Rights Campaign's Number One item - the thing they postponed DADT repeal for - has resulted in no actual prosecutions in the year since it was passed."

-- Andrew Sullivan in a post titled, "Gays, The Battered Wife Of The Democratic Party: Dissents" Sullivan argues that the hate crimes law should have been the last thing on Gay Inc leaders priorities in favor of harder legislation while Dems held enough seats to break a filibuster.
