Why You’ll Never Know How Much NOM Is Donating to Republican Carly Fiorina

Something called the Latino Partnership for Conservative Principles is fronting $1 million for Carly Fiorina, the Republican Senate hopeful from California. Somehow entangled in all the money flow is the National Organization for Marriage, but thanks to campaign finance laws, which don’t require non-profits that act as money laundering middle men, you may never know how much the Mormon Church’s front group is putting forth. Worth noting: Fiorina, the former Hewlett-Packard chief, “believes in the sanctity of a marriage between a man and a woman,” but supports the same rights for gay couples with civil unions.
