Exploring Brian Brown's curious side project

by Jeremy Hooper

This is an awesome piece from The American Independent's Sofia Resnick (and not just because I'm mentioned). Go read in full:

“NOM is not a partisan organization or a stalking horse for either party,” wrote National Organization for Marriage President Brian Brown in March. “We Screen Shot 2012-05-17 At 11.02.14 Am are a movement of people of every race, creed, color — and party — willing to stand up for marriage.”

NOM has long insisted that its battle against same-sex marriage transcends partisanship. “We’re committed to achieving a majority for marriage, not any particular partisan majority,” said Brown in announcing NOM’s recent endorsement of an anti-marriage equality Democrat in New York.

Which is what makes NOM’s close relationship with a right-wing fundraising and activism organization called ActRight so striking.

Is NOM acting right? [ActRight]
