NOM for Carl 'gays grind against each other in speedos' Paladino, against disclosure laws

by Jeremy Hooper

Shocker:

A national group that opposes gay marriage wants to sponsor advertisements supporting Carl P. Paladino for governor and bashing his opponent, Andrew M. Cuomo.

But the National Organization for Marriage doesn't want to conform to state election laws requiring it to register as a political committee and reveal the names of its contributors.

Not sure which is more predictable: That NOM officials are yet against positioning their work and their reliably suspect donations above election law, or that they are planning to back a far-right candidate who's said he doesn't want to see children "brainwashed into thinking that homosexuality is an equally valid and successful option." Though gauging NOM shockers is kind of like choosing a favorite child: Some vulnerable person is getting hurt regardless of the answer.
