NOM EXPOSED: MEMO: Circumventing campaign finance law for donor secrecy

by Jeremy Hooper

NOM Exposed's Kevin Nix rounds up the National Organization For Marriage's curious state-by-state attempt to flout donor disclosure laws:

MEMORANDUM

To: Interested Parties

From: Kevin Nix, Human Rights Campaign

Re: Circumventing campaign finance law for donor secrecy

Date: August 24, 2011

6A00D8341C503453Ef0154349F168B970C-2The nation’s leading anti-gay group, the National Organization for Marriage, opposes marriage and civil unions for gay and lesbian couples. Earlier this month, many of the leading Republican presidential candidates signed NOM’s pledge calling for a constitutional amendment to ban gay marriage.

NOM has filed a raft of lawsuits to shield its donors from public disclosure. But, as this memo outlines, courts and state election boards have consistently disagreed and rejected NOM’s challenges. Donor disclosure is uniformly required across the country for federal, state and local campaigns and is widely accepted as a vital means to ensure that elections are conducted transparently and fairly.
