The so-called National Organization for Marriage has unsuccessfully challenged campaign finance disclosure laws in Maine, Minnesota, New York, California, Rhode Island, and Iowa. And in every case they still have not disclosed so much as a single name. Why? Because the court rulings don’t really matter since they offer no criminal penalty for non-compliance as of yet.
So we can safely bet that NOM will continue to flout these laws until after the 2012 elections have passed, because revealing the names of their donors only ensures that the LGBT media will analyze their donors to expose their business associations and anti-gay pasts. NOM likes to pretend that they’re protecting their ‘principled supporters of conscience’ from violent gay bullies. But really they’re just protecting themselves because publishing their bully financiers would further discredit their already crumbling efforts.
