Shaking NOM's piggy bank: MN Board lends a hand

by Jeremy Hooper

A win in the ongoing case of The National Organization For Marriage v. Transparency:

The Minnesota Campaign Finance and Public Disclosure Board ruled [Thursday] that corporate donations to groups advocating for or against a constitutional amendment that would ban same-sex marriage must be disclosed. The Minnesota Family Council (MFC) and the National Organization for Marriage (NOM) argued that supporters of marriage equality would commit violence against their donors if they were made public. On Thursday, the board disagreed.

Not sure what's next, as it's a near certainty that their conservative superstar lawyer, James Bopp, is planning any and every way to drag feet on this. But it's becoming increasingly clear that NOM's closet does not take precedence over this nation's commitment to fair and clean elections. Increasingly clear that the actuality of taking away people's rights under the cover of darkness is much more threatening than the anti-equality crowd's self-victimizing fables.
