What can we learn from Brian Brown's ActRight.com?

by Jeremy Hooper

Thanks to ActRight.com, a Republican fundraising site that National Organization for Marriage president Brian Brown recently launched, we can now get at least a smidgen of insight into NOM financing. According to the site's public disclosure page, the following seven people have contributed a total of $1,206 to America's organized voice of civil marriage discrimination:

The only name that really sticks out is Stephen Linder. Linder runs Michigan firm The Sterling Corporation, which was heavily involved in both California's Prop 8 and Maine's Question One fight.

And of course Maggie. Not really sure why she's give some of her salary back to NOM. But okay, whatever.

This is of course a tiny drop in the NOM financing bucket. But for a group that has hidden its donors more steadfastly than overachieving easter bunnies hide their pastel ovals or "Real Housewives" cast members dance around their between-season "tuneups," it's kind of refreshing to see something resembling disclosure. Especially from a Brian Brown-crafted effort.

Lejeune is the head of Opus Fidelis, the firm handling NOM's social media outreach. Neil Corkery is on NOM's board.
