NOM's Maine donors: Court pulls cards even further from Brian Brown's chest

by Jeremy Hooper

Another loss for NOM. Yet another court has ruled that they must let the state of Maine know the particular wells from whence their considerable "Yes on 1" cash came:

A federal appeals court in Boston has ordered the National Organization for Marriage to hand over information about its donors to the state.

(H/t: Dirigo Blue)

But never one to be deterred by transparency of the constraints of civil governance, NOM president Brian Brown vows to take this all the way to the Supreme Court. All of which makes the contents of this donor list curiouser and curiouser. Who the hell is this super VIP they're protecting: Pope God Gaga Trump Vader Christ Jessica-Parker?

But ya see, it's all very simple. When someone likes a particular baker's cake and inquires about its contents, they want to know the ingredients, not the branding of the funnel. In this instance, NOM is the funnel. The ingredients are what led 2009's most biased ballot box cake to rise. The state has a right to know the dough!
