Out-of-state groups spent a whopping $948,355 in two months in the successful campaign to oust Iowa’s Supreme Court justices, who joined the unanimous decision to legalize gay marriage. The National Organization for Marriage wrote checks for two-thirds of that total, spending $635,627 in the state, according to financial disclosure forms.
