Anti-Gay Group Strapped

Some anti-gay activists are having a hard time scrounging for cash. Arkansas-based Family Council Action Committee, which hopes to ban gay adoption, sent out an urgent call asking supporters for more money.

That dough, they say, will go toward getting professionals to meet July’s 92,000 signature deadline, which will guarantee the measure a place on November’s ballot.

The Committee remains optimistic, but they’ve definitely got their work cut out for them. Arkansas Families First, formed in reaction to the group, has gathered more contributions since February than the Committee has since last July. The latter counts about $22,000 for its exclusionary efforts, while Families First has $32,000 for their fight.
