NOM Strategy, Exposed: Fred Karger demanded, got answers

by Jeremy Hooper

Without Fred Karger, we would not know what we now all know about the National Organization For Marriage. That's not an overstatement. He really deserves a massive portion of any dished out praise.

Fred's comment:

STATEMENT by Fred Karger on the release of the Confidential Campaign Documents from the National Organization for Marriage:

“I have been tracking the National Organization for Marriage (NOM) for the past four years trying to find out all that they are secretly doing to fight marriage equally throughout the United States. Thanks to the hard work and extreme dedication of the Maine Ethics Commission and State Attorney General’s office we are able to get a glimpse into NOM’s evil ways. NOM’s contempt for the law and manipulation of the truth appears to show intent to violate state and possibly federal election laws. I have long and loudly called for a Congressional or U. S. Senate investigation of the National Organization for Marriage. Now it is absolutely necessary.

No wonder NOM spent millions of dollars in 3 federal law suits to try and stop the Maine Ethics Commission investigation. The United States Supreme Court, an advocate of transparency and disclosure in campaign reporting, finally ended NOM’s nearly 3 year battle to hide all it finances and records when it turned down NOM’s last appeal earlier this month.

I was subpoenaed by NOM in a federal law suit just 10 days after I filed this complaint against NOM in Maine:
CLICK HERE It was a very difficult and expensive undertaking, but I received much support from hundreds of donors to my legal defense fund. We eventually prevailed and NOM’s attempted harassment of me was foiled after our vigorous legal defense. It was now all worth it to help get some answers from this highly secretive organization.

I hope that the Catholic and Mormon Churches who have both actively supported the National Organization for Marriage over the past four years will join me in repudiating their actions and stop any direct funding of NOM as well as asking their members to do the same.”
