Shady? NOM? *Our* NOM?! You don't say

by Jeremy Hooper

On Saturday afternoon, I noticed something really fishy with the National Organization For Marriage's failing "Dump Starbucks" effort, but I didn't say anything. Thankfully, G-A-Y pal Matt Algren did:

So NOM claims that they trucked along at a steady pace of about 2,500 – 3,500 signatures per day from Wednesday through Saturday morning, had a burst of 7,100 signatures in a half hour, then abruptly returned to their previous rate. In 23 minutes, according to NOM, they got almost as many signatures as they had in the previous three days combined.

That kind of sudden increase and identically sudden reversal are, to be polite, unlikely.
