Transparency not even of NOMinal interest: John Eastman edition

by Jeremy Hooper

Fact: On February 22, 2010, the National Organization For Marriage co-sponsored a swanky DC fundraiser for then-California-Attorney-General-candidate John Eastman.

Fact: For his 2010 AG campaign, Eastman used Schubert-Flint Public Affairs (aka NOM and Prop 8's firm).

Fact: In April of 2010, NOM president Brian Brown said of Eastman's candidacy: "We view this race as one of the most important races in the countryā€¯

Fact: John Eastman even went so far as to run NOM emails on his campaign website.


But of course NOM won't tell you any of that. Instead they'll act like Eastman is just some independent voice with non-agenda-laden thoughts:

Because disclosure is inconvenient. For NOM, we mean -- not us. We'll gladly do what they won't.
