How profitable is discrimination? Just ask Frank Schubert

by Jeremy Hooper

If not for the whole unshakable legacy of discrimination, this whole taking away people's rights gig would be a really good and profitable job. No one knows this more that Frank Schubert, the NOM-affiliated public affairs guy who made his national name during Prop 8, continued the inequality work in both Maine ('09) and North Carolina, and is working on at least three of the four state campaigns this year.

With nearly three months left in the campaign season, here are the listed expenditures that the Minnesota, Washington, and Maine inequality campaigns have already made to Schubert's Mission Public Affairs:

MINNESOTA:

Over $200,000 already. Couple this with the WHOPPING $958,594 the the North Carolina campaign passed through the Mission Public Affairs business and you have a LOT of money passing through the one small operation.

Now, to be fair, much of this haul is not personal profit. But don't be fooled—these billed business expenses are helping Schubert build his new, NOM-centric stable for all future fights. This is a man who is making an extremely comfortable living by working to either stop or take away good and decent citizens' loving unions, largely based around his personal faith convictions.

Ah, America. Land of opportunity.
