NOM is trying so hard to hide its contributors to the Maine campaign. Maggie Gallagher and Brian Brown clearly have something to hide. But, their latest gambit to dismiss their case at the Maine Ethics Commission failed:
The ethics commission today rejected a request from the National Organization for Marriage to end an investigation of the group’s finances.
The group, which was the biggest contributor to the successful Yes on 1 campaign to repeal the state’s same-sex marriage law, argued in a letter to the commission that it did not have the legal power to conduct an investigation.
But on a 4-0 vote this morning, the commission rejected that argument.
“It seems to me if this was such a compelling issue for them they would have brought it earlier,” said Commission Chairman Walter McKee. “I have no doubt this will be appealed to Superior Court.”
NOM loves litigation. The group keeps losing, but Maggie and Brian keep suing. They’ve really got something to hide here. They’re acting desperate.
