Kevin's tail light has nothing to do with it. When you tightened the axle back down, the axle cocked to the rear, and the adjuster became loose.

Loosten up your axle, and slide it forward on that side, until your adjuster plate is tight against the swingarm, then torque the axle nut down.

I'd check the alignment again, on both sides, and the tension after you do that. Some people count turns, flats, use florescent tubes, etc. All you have to do is sight down the chain run from the back. You can see if the chain runs cocked to the left or right this way, really easy, just adjust the chain run straight on.
