mm718: Some of the adjusting nuts are made from a metal nut inside of a plastic shell. Perhaps the plastic housing has come loose from the metal and that is what is spinning loosely. If this appears to be the case, perhaps you could use a pliers or Vice-Grips to squeeze it and get it to turn. Worst case you will need to hacksaw off the nut, taking care not to damage the frame, and get a new skewer.
Edit: desertdork beat me to it.
