It’s especially gratifying with the group in question is the National Organization for Marriage (NOM):
The Maine attorney general is prodding a national group that fights same-sex marriage to reveal its donors by Election Day, after a federal judge on Wednesday denied the group’s request for a restraining order.
Voters will decide on Tuesday whether to repeal Maine’s law allowing same-sex marriage, a ballot question that has been the focus of a heated battle this fall. As of last Friday, the group, the National Organization for Marriage, had supplied more than half of the $2.6 million raised for the repeal effort.
The National Organization for Marriage, based in Washington, also played a central role in last year’s successful effort to ban same-sex marriage in California. It is waging similar battles in Iowa, New Jersey, New York and other states.
NOM thinks it can change laws it doesn’t like. Its leaders, Maggie Gallagher and Brian Brown, are trying to change Maine’s marriage equality law by circumventing Maine’s campaign ethics laws.
And, a major hat tip to Fred Karger at Californians Against Hate who filed the complaint against NOM with the Maine Secretary of State.
