Will (DC and NJ-based) NOM's seemingly limitless, highly suspect funds buy Iowa's special election?

by Jeremy Hooper

NOM has thrown nearly $10k more into Iowa's special state Senate race, putting their running total up to $37,082.85:

NOM is backing Republican Cindy Golding over Democrat Liz Mathis because the GOP candidate has vowed to mar a future state ballot with a divisive, distracting, discriminatory measure that would strip Iowans of a court-tested right, while Mathis has promised to keep with the benign peace that is working quite well for the state. This seat could tip the balance in the statehouse, allowing a biased ban to move forward, so NOM, the proud birthers of all of this nation's biased bans, are coughing up as much out-of-state cash as they can.

And as we know with NOM: They always have access to funds, regardless of a seemingly absent donor base.

Seriously: Someone really needs to find the NOM cash pipeline -- it makes Powerball look like tooth fairy money! Personally, I'd start the search in Rome.
